Motor Oil Pouch and Stand Up Bags
Consumers and regulatory agencies alike have increasingly focused on the environmental impact of retail products. The products themselves, their manufacturing processes, shipping procedures, even packaging, have all come under scrutiny as society as a whole struggles with how we can minimize the negative impact of our activities on the planet. Putting aside the politically-charged issue of climate change, there is little controversy around efforts to reduce waste (and, therefore, litter) and consumption of materials and non-sustainable energy sources. When the product itself is a source of potentially adverse effects on our environment, doing all we can to reduce, if not eliminate, those factors becomes even more important.
One such product is motor oil and one way to minimize the long-term environmental impact of motor oil is to use the most eco-friendly packaging available: Stand up pouches. In fact, a stand up motor oil pouch reduces the overall environmental impact of motor oil and possesses other features as well.
A stand up motor oil pouch consists of multiple layers of scientifically-formulated film that have been laminated together to create a barrier that is strong, durable and, perhaps most importantly, puncture-resistant (critical, of course, for preventing potentially costly and environmentally hazardous spills). Surprising to some is the fact that while a stand up motor oil pouch is built from multiple film layers, it actually requires less material (up to 12 percent less) to make than most other packaging bags. Less material means less weight (therefore requiring less fuel/unit to ship and less waste after disposal.
Stand up pouches provide further environmental benefits by virtue of their design. Each stand up motor oil pouch is a complete, self-contained package, requiring no inner liner or outer container to protect the contents from vapor, odor, moisture or light. By eliminating extra packaging, you’ll also eliminate the need for materials and energy normally associated with its manufacture, transportation, storage and/or disposal.
Stand up pouches offer excellent branding opportunities for your brand of motor oil and are convenient to use and store. Contact us for a complete rundown of the features they offer.
