Eco-Friendly Packaging Solution
Change the way you package.
We share your concern about the environmental impact of your product packaging. One primary concern and the most often asked question is, Are stand-up pouches eco-friendly? The quick and straightforward answer to that question is yes. The term eco-friendly does not have a single definition. Accordingly, because of the lack of unity on the term, brands and suppliers decide independently how to describe the category. Copious Bags will continue to evolve in this area along with the discoveries and innovations in our space.
What is mindful packaging?
Mindful Packaging — eco-friendly, reusable, made with post-consumer recycled materials, and has less impact on the environment.
Copious Bags is committed to producing stand-up bags of the highest quality to ultimately protect and preserve your product. Our key priority is to manufacture stand-up pouches that are food-grade, FDA-approved, BPA-free, using recyclable and recycled materials whenever possible. In addition, we test each production run for safety and quality assurance, always ensuring that our bags maintain the highest industry standards. The result is food-grade packaging that is certified and safe to use for many product types.

Re-Usability Equals Less Waste
Today’s earth-conscious consumer gravitates towards reusable products. The short lifespan of most packaging contributes to the growing problem and excess of waste. Because stand up pouches are resealable and reusable, they produce far less waste than traditional single-use packaging.
Reduced Material and Fuel Cost
As a whole, flexible packaging requires 75% less material to produce the finished product than bottles, jars, and other hard, inflexible rigid packaging. As a result, the packaging weight is 70% lower, equating to lower shipping costs. In addition, because the products weigh less, they require less fuel per unit to transport and an overall decrease in energy consumption, reducing the carbon footprint and lowering the negative impact on the environment.
No Outer Packaging Needed
Stand-up pouches are virtually a finished product, making them an ideal eco-friendly packaging choice. Because these pouches are heat sealable, they require no extra packaging material; no boxes, no plastic clamshells, no plastic seals. Once they are labeled, filled, and heat-sealed…they are ready for market. Consequently, no extra material or energy is needed to manufacture, store, ship, or dispose of that additional packaging material.
Less Landfill Impact
Stand up pouches are made with fewer materials. Accordingly, empty pouches occupy up to 95% less space than their rigid counterparts. As a result, stand-up pouches generate less waste after disposal. In addition, empty pouches are flat, taking up about as much space as a large or small envelope. Therefore they take up very little room in the landfill.
BPA-Free & FDA Approved
Copious Bags’ stand-up pouches are made from BPA-Free materials and are FDA compliant for direct contact with food.
