    SMASH! bought 15,000 bags at a great price, meeting their budget requirements.

    The High Density matt finish and crisp texture of the HDPE bags suited the brilliantly-lit, electric atmosphere.

Our carry bags can withstand the activity of shoulder to shoulder bustle and SMASH! was confident that their customers' goods would be well taken care of.

  • Paper Bags for Florist & Fresh Flower Shops

    Busy florist shops need quality paper bags, and over the last 10 years Bag Mart Australia has served the fresh flower industry with paper bags of various shapes and sizes. With a demanding point of sale routine, retail Florists need the right support items on hand and high quality paper bags are definitely one of those items.

    The most common style is the Kraft Brown with paper twist handle, offering a good set of features. The first point is strength; water treated before manufacture, our paper bags are very strong even when they get slightly wet, offering a longer use time for items like fresh flowers where the water may escape and damage the bag. The second point is seam strength; every part of each seam is glued through, making each bag strong in the entire construction, a very important aspect when carrying fresh flowers that may lean on one part of the bag unevenly when carrying them. Thirdly is the handle strength; twisted paper handles that are glued into the top paper layer with a second strengthening strip, these paper handles will not pull out of the bag and provide the security needed for every customer.

    Finally, our wholesale quantity prices and fast delivery make the Bag Mart service one to trust right across Australia. On the go florists need reliable service support and Bag Mart has been providing this for over a decade.

    If you run a busy flower shop and take your business seriously, then Bag Mart is here to support you. Say it with flowers as they say - florists are an important part of our community, so we are pleased to be of service with quality brown paper bags.

  • Paper Bags - the Natural Choice

    Most people would say that paper bags are better than plastic, but have you ever stopped to consider why?

    One thought on the subject brings a surprisingly simple answer. We as human beings respond more favourably to the natural environment around us, and to those things which are made directly from it. Though we are surrounded by synthetic products every day, we love to see a tree swaying in the breeze and a cow munching on some grass. The history of paper itself is about trees that were used to make the paper, with a visible and tangible connection between the source and the end use of the product. We like timber furniture, leather shoes, wool and cotton garments for the same reason, and we like them to last.

    The first aspect to this observation, is that the source is renewable. Plants and animals grow and reproduce, so the source of the products that we use from them can be made available to following generations. Our link to nature itself and the cycle of life draws our choices toward them, often without knowing it’s happening. We want to be part of nature and of a better tomorrow.

    The second aspect is related. Our behaviour toward natural items like paper bags will tend toward the reuse of that product, similar to the renewable energy patterns found in nature. Paper bags are an example, where if we are connected with the natural cycles of life, we will naturally want to reuse a paper bag for another purpose. We receive a paper carry bag with a purchase for example, then use it to send a gift to a friend, who may then have another use for it.

    A third aspect is the option to recycle. In addition to reuse, we now have the ability to recycle paper bags back into the production process. The point here is that it can be recycled - it is a natural wood fiber product that came from trees, and once again, this adds to our connection with nature and the ongoing cycles of life.

    So quite apart from the negative aspects of plastic bags that may make us lean toward paper bags as the better choice, the positive and natural reasons for using paper bags are more significant than most people realise.

    Good 360 have chosen to use paper bags because it naturally makes more sense -  to reuse and recycle from a renewable source is the sensible choice. Bag Mart Australia is proud to support this choice by supplying quality paper carry bags for the 2016 Goody Bag Appeal. Visit for more info.
