EVOLUTION OF COMPANY
In the year 1986 a single preparatory concern by the name universal eco bags was founded by Mr. K.J. Thomas. The organisation was basically in the operational spears of paper trading and note book manufacturing. The organisation was managed by Mr, Thomas himself. The business continued for more than a decade and an innovative idea beyond the market's thought process evolved that was paper bags. As a result of prudent research Mr. Thomas understood the practical efficacy of paper bags and the gap prevailing in the market, but the only pursuing problem was the non-availability of equipment or an apparatus which can manufacture paper bags at a low investment cost. His engineering skills didn’t become futile he found out new machinery which makes paper bags on a fast phase than handmade paper bags. The machine is under pending patency and in the year 2008 and to formalise it the company was Christianised as Bio Way Packs Pvt Ltd and was incorporated in the year 2011.

MUCH MORE ABOUT PAPER BAGS
It is time to rethink of using products which harm nature and further paper bags work to create a more sustainable world, naturally contributing to slowing climate change. The major characteristic of paper bag encompasses natural compostable characteristics; paper bags do not harm any sea life. They are a key factor in developing the brand image of shops. They are appreciated by consumers who now have a better understanding of the benefits of using paper. The world is changing and thought processes are changing the communities have started to rethink.
Paper bags have a low climate impact
All industrial activity impacts the environment. A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) can work as a tool for measuring the environmental performance of different products and processes. One of the environmental impact categories is Global Warming Potential (GWP). It describes how much global warming a given type and amount of greenhouse gas may cause, using the functionally equivalent amount or concentration of CO2 as a benchmark.
IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute has conducted a study on the greenhouse gas emissions caused by the production of different paper and plastic bags. The conclusion was that paper bags (produced with virgin fibres or recycled fibres) have a remarkably low impact on GWP compared to Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) bags (produced with renewable or recycled LDPE)
Paper bags are recyclable and biodegradable
A cellulose fibre from a paper product can be recycled up to six times before it is turned into bioenergy or being composted at the end of its life cycle. Recycling paper means reducing polluting emissions produced by landfills.
Recovered paper cannot be efficiently used in all paper grades, nor can it be used indefinitely. Paper recycling needs to continuously incorporate a certain amount of fresh fibres for three main reasons:
Strength – cellulose fibre deteriorates each time it is recycled.
On occasions where strength is required, a paper bag made of natural kraft paper which has major benefits:
Due to the natural kraft paper’s long and strong virgin fibres, it has a high level of mechanical strength. Lower weights of paper can be used while maintaining the same strength. It can be reused several times thanks to its good quality and design.
if a paper bag were to mistakenly end up in nature, it would not harm the land or the oceans. As a natural product, it is biodegradable within two to five months without harming the environment, unlike other shopping bags that can take more than 400 years to decompose.
Paper bags are reusable
Experience shows that consumers reuse paper bags for different purposes or use them for their next shopping trips.
The ITENE Packaging, Transport & Logistics Research Centre developed a method to assess the reusability of paper bags. The results of the validation show that, regardless of the type of handle, paper bags are reusable, both for textile and for other uses. They withstood several endurance tests which, depending on the paper bag reuse being validated, changed in terms of times and weight per bag
The bag full of emotions
The bag that is the centre of attention
WHAT THE PAPER BAG CONSUMER NEEDS
Shopping bags are used by retailers to protect customer purchases and to make them easier to transport.
A bag must fulfil the following functions as packaging:
Most convincing factors for customers
Dispense truly sustainable bags
Support a new consumer culture
Improve delivery of purchases
Advertise with imagination
Remain in the minds of buyers
Demonstrate social responsibility
The impact of the right material
A strong and durable bag is a real asset to a retailer. It protects the goods, reduces waste and saves money. The key to performance lies in the material and the construction of the bag.
Strong kraft papers
Kraft paper is an excellent choice for carrier bags that must withstand heavy loads. It is especially developed for demanding packaging and is made from slow-growing spruce and pine from sustainably managed forests or otherwise cultivated in a commercial basis. The long fibres of these trees result in papers with high strength and durability.
Construction is important
The tests and analyses that have been carried out show that constructive elements affect the paper bag’s performance. The choice of glue and a proficient construction of the handles add to the bag’s strength and durability.
