When we decided to search for a material to package our products in, there were countless options available. Today, both flexible packaging supplies like stand up pouches and traditional materials like glass are very popular.
Pros And Cons Of Glass Packaging
People have been packaging products in glass containers for hundreds of years. From whiskey bottles to baby food, the types of products packaged in glass are virtually endless. Having been part of the human experience for so long, glass often produces an interesting effect on the consumer. Seen as having an air of luxury and/or vintage aesthetic, glass is often chosen for its smooth texture, non-porous attributes, hand feel, weight, and visual appeal.
PROS OF GLASS PACKAGING:
- Aesthetic And Physical Appeal
- Air Of Luxury
- Infinitely Recyclable
CONS OF GLASS PACKAGING:
- Significantly Costlier Than Plastic
- Expensive To Make
- Expensive To Ship
- Uses Excessive Energy To Produce
- High Carbon Footprint

With a large variety of materials in flexible packaging, we are able to use a package that can stand, hang or sit with ease. Basically, flexible packaging has a potential solution for every product and the packaging works to enhance the product contained within.
Stand-up pouches we decided to go with are from Copious Bags®, an eco-friendly packaging alternative to traditional glass jars. Because they are made of lightweight materials and require 75-90% less material to produce, they reduce energy consumption and produce less CO2 emissions. The lightweight construction our bags is far more economical to transport than rigid packaging which saves on fuel cost and consumption. The bags ship flat and take up less space than jars, bottles, and cans. The bags are reusable and require no additional outer packaging for retail, therefore, they drastically reduce unnecessary waste and take up far less landfill space.
Our frosted stand-up pouches are indeed 100% recyclable!
Also, please note that all of our bags meet all the requirements of the FDA for direct contact with food and they are BPA free. In general, stand up pouches saves more resources than it consumes.
