Mindful Packaging Made Simple™

Eco-friendly standup pouches...refill, reseal, reuse — A drive toward sustainability.

Eco-Friendly Packaging Solution

Make a statement with your brand — Change the way you package.

Looking for high-quality, stand up bags? Copious Bags® offers stand up pouches that are the packaging choice for brands looking to transition out of traditional rigid packaging such as bottles, jars, and tins.

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 protect and preserve your product ultimately. 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 making sure that our bags maintain the highest industry standards. The result is food-grade packaging that is certified and safe to use for a multitude of product types.

Discover the benefits of mindful packaging — Standup bags that elevate the products you sell.


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 as compared to bottles, jars, and other hard, inflexible rigid packaging. As a result, the packaging weight is 70% lower which equates to lower shipping costs. Because the products weigh less, they require less fuel per unit to transport, and an overall decrease in energy consumption. Which in turn reduces the carbon footprint and lowers the negative impact on the environment.


Recyclable and Post-Consumer Recycled Materials.


All of our bags collections are made with recycled post consumer materials and our Matte Frosted Stand Up Bags and LoPro™ Clear Stand Up Bags are 100% recyclable!

No Outer Packaging Needed


Stand up pouches are virtually a finished product which makes 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


Empty pouches occupy up to 95% less space than their rigid counterparts. Stand up pouches are made with less material, as a result, they generate less waste after disposal. When empty, the pouches are flat, and depending on the size, take up about as much space as a large or small envelope. Therefore they take up very little room in the landfill.
