Bag It Up

Regardless of the type of food business you run (or want to run!), there are numerous times when you may need a bag for your products.   Cellophane bags are a great way to showcase your products and help preserve freshness but their impact on the environment is less than ideal.  Complicating matters is the fact that if you want to use a cellophane bag you need to find one that is FDA-compliant for food contact.   So does an environmentall-friendly FDA-approved cellophane bag exist?  Wouldn’t this be the worst Earth Week post ever if I simply said no!?

NatureFlex is the answer for food entrepreneurs who want to show off their wares in beautiful FDA-approved cellophane bags but want to limit their carbon footprint.  Available in a variety of sizes and shapes for all types of food, NatureFlex cello bags are made from wood pulp from environmentally-managed sources and the bags are naturally biodegradable and can be composted either at home or in via industrial methods.    And just because the bags are eco-friendly doesn’t mean food businesses have to give up any quality.  These bags look and feel almost exactly like tradiational cellophane bags and are heat sealable too!

NatureFlex bags are available at a variety of food packaging wholesalers like Nashville Wraps and Bags & Bows.
