Bags of all kinds are a time-tested, multi-industry-trusted, flexible packaging system. Bags have evolved from burlap sacks to stand up pouch packaging made from all sorts of materials. Flexible packaging is a container (typically a mylar bag) that can bend and move to accommodate its contents. Mylar flexible bag packaging is flat when it’s empty and bulges as it’s filled. Essentially, packaging bags are simple flexible containers with openings at the top. But foil bag packaging can vary wildly from stand up pouch packaging to resealable packaging bags to flexible retort pouch packaging. Additionally, industry preferences, brand vibes, and customer demands have all played a role in the evolution of bags such as pouch packaging and retort packaging.
In some cases, mylar packaging is also used for shopping bags or “exit bags." However, some states don't allow open-topped exit bags, and require tamper-evident, resealable, and/or child-resistant exit bags. Green Earth has a variety of flexible packaging bags that adhere to appropriate safety regulations for foil bag packaging to keep everyone – businesses, customers, and bystanders – protected and happy.
Exit bag laws are often different from packaging requirements for other packaging bags. Exit bags are more than just what to put the products in for customers to leave the store with. They range from stand up pouch packaging to retort packaging to double-zipper, fully opaque, tamper-evident mylar packaging.
Some states have strict laws about the containers that various products are packaged in. Thankfully, we carry resealable packaging bags and other varieties of pouch packaging that can work for every product in every state.
Beyond just meeting legal requirements, sturdy, reliable, pouch packaging is one of the very best ways to keep your product fresh. Wholesale pouch packaging bags made from mylar are space-savers that are also more durable when compared to jars. They’re also highly customizable and come with several compliance packaging options. If you’ve been looking for an exit bag in bulk, we definitely have something for you in our diverse and extensive wholesale collection.
What Are Wholesale Packaging Bags?
Wholesale pouch packaging has been a boom across multiple industries. Bulk packaging bags are traditionally standard pouch packaging. Most are made from mylar because it's extremely flexible product packaging and it's constructed to keep everything fresh, potent, and safe from harm – even after the customer first opens their retort packaging.
Mylar bags became an industry standard when the food industry latched onto them decades ago. When coffee – an ultra-fragrant product that, when exposed to air, can lose its aromatic, flavorful, and potent qualities – was successfully packaged in mylar bags, it demonstrated what a revolutionary flexible packaging material it is. If mylar packaging can conceal the pungency while protecting the potency of coffee, it can do the same for a wide range of products. Mylar resealable packaging bags are simply one of the best ways to securely package your products in a smell proof, airtight, impact proof way. If you’re running a delivery service, you'll definitely need wholesale bags in bulk.
Thanks to our extensive collection of customizable wholesale bags, we can make your packaging bags stand out.
Are Your Bulk Packaging Bags Recyclable?
Unfortunately, traditional mylar flexible bags are not recyclable through most common recycling programs because of their combination of metal and plastic. There are specialty locations and programs where they can be recycled, though, and all of the bags are reusable! We encourage everyone who uses mylar flexible bags to look into their local programs for recycling those combined materials. That being said, we do make a line of “mylar” recyclable retort pouches, so keep reading to learn about those eco-friendly options.
