Sustainability of Bulk Bags

At Bulk Bag Co., we are committed to sustainable packaging solutions. Bulk bags can be an eco-friendly alternative that promotes environmental responsibility throughout the supply chain.

  1. Reusable and Recyclable

We have a range of multi trip bulk bags are designed to be reused. By choosing the multi trip bulk bags, you contribute to a circular economy, minimising waste generation. Our bags are made from durable and recyclable polypropylene, which can be recycled into new products, further reducing their environmental impact. Plasback are the best company to talk to regarding recycling.

Our new ECOFLEX (recycled bulk bag) range incorporates 30% high quality, recycled polypropylene. We increase the fabric weight so these bags are just as strong with better UV resistance and look great in black. 

2. Efficient Transportation and Storage

With their large capacity, our bulk bags enable efficient transportation and storage. By reducing the number of trips required and optimising space utilisation, we help minimize carbon emissions and decrease the need for secondary packaging materials. This means fewer cardboard boxes and plastic wrapping, leading to reduced waste and a smaller carbon footprint.

3. Promoting Sustainable Practices

Our bulk bags not only benefit your operations but also promote sustainability throughout the supply chain. Their lightweight design reduces transportation costs and fuel consumption, resulting in lower greenhouse gas emissions. Our bags can be customised to meet specific requirements, such as incorporating liners for product protection. This versatility allows for efficient handling, minimising the risk of product damage and the need for additional packagingWe have recently shown this through our new HELI BAG which was specifically designed for the Department of Conservation to reduce the amount of helicopter trips required while focusing on safety.

While plastic packaging has often garnered a negative reputation, it is important to recognise that when used responsibly and managed effectively, it can be the most cost-effective and sustainable option available.


Guide to Bulk Density: Finding the Right Bag Size for Your Product

This guide helps you determine the appropriate size of bulk bag for your product based on its bulk density to ensure safe and efficient handling. It's important to note that a cube of product can have vastly different weights, depending on the type of material. For instance, a cube of sand and a cube of stock feed is the same size, but their weights are significantly different. Whether you're selling a cube of product or a tonne of product, it's crucial to consider the specific density and weight of the material.

How to work out the cubic capacity of our bags

Width x depth x height = cubic metre (m3)

Stock Examples:

BB60INSL 90x90x60cm. 0.9x0.9x0.6 = Half Cube

BB120INSL-M 90x90x120cm 0.9x0.9x1.2 = 1 Cube


Examples by Industry:

Stock Feed PKE approx 750kg/ m3

BB150INSL = 1.215 cube (0.9x0.9x1.5)

750kg x 1.215 = 911kg/ bag

Bag SWL 1250kg = Safe


Sand approx 1600kg/ m3

BB100UNL = 0.81 cube (0.9x0.9x1.0)

1600kg x 0.81 = 1296kg / bag

Bag SWL 1500kg = Safe
