When it comes to sustainability, chopping down even more trees doesn’t sound great, but don’t give us the axe. Whereas a big oak might take 35 years to fully grow, bamboo takes just a few months. This allows the forests to be sustainable, plus bamboo’s rapid growth means their products can be a lot cheaper to buy than traditionally made products.

Kraft paper has been used for over a century to produce a far stronger form of paper. Because it naturally degrades in just a few weeks, it has no greater environmental consequence than leaves falling off a tree.
A variant of kraft paper, made from recycled pulp, is a great option for brands that want to use sustainable packaging in their supply chain. While its uses as a packaging material have been well-known, the DGW Shop has a range of products that proves it is a great alternative to plastic.
1. Kraft Paper Backpack
