Plastic Bag Bans? Consider Tape Handles as an Alternative

Plastic Bag Bans? Consider Tape Handles as an Alternative
Posted: 9/10/22 | Category:  Product Review, Supplies Shops Product Highlights | By: 

There’s no denying that plastic bags have made life easier and more convenient. Not only do they get products from the store into your vehicle and home, but the bags can also be used within the home for a variety of uses.

Despite the convenience, however, it’s also apparent that plastic bags have a number of harmful effects on the environment. For decades these effects been ignored, but a growing number of people are no longer willing to stand by and let this environmental problem get worse. It may not be possible to fix or undo all the damage that has been done, but it’s important to take action and make changes now to help safeguard our planet’s future.

Many states and major cities have enacted plastic bag bans in 2022, and there’s no doubt that many more will likely follow. These bans can have a positive impact from an environmental perspective, but many customers and business owners may be worried about how the changes will affect the everyday shopping experience.

Thankfully, there are alternatives to single-use plastic bags. The first is reusable shopping bags. There are many reusable bag options available that are more durable and environmentally friendly than plastic bags.

The second is using versatile and convenient tape handles for those big, bulky, hard-to-carry items.

What Are Tape Handles?

Tape handles are plastic bag ban alternatives that allow customers to carry large items with ease. The sticky ends can be applied to the sides of the product. A loop is created that can be simply grabbed to move the item from one place to another.

What makes these carrying handles for boxes and other items so convenient is that they can be used for many different items: They can be attached to household paper products, such as paper towels and toilet paper, as well as to cases of bottled water or dog food, or large variety packs of chips. Product offerings aren’t getting smaller, and many people like to buy in bulk and store large quantities of items in their home — but transporting these products can be cumbersome. These adhesive carry handles provide a solution to this problem.

Tape handles can be used outside of grocery or warehouse stores as well. For instance, electronic supply stores can use them to give customers a better grip on the TV or computer they just purchased. No matter how big or bulky the item is, adding tape handles can make transporting it from one place to another much easier.

These carry handles are also available in different sizes and weight capabilities, so you can make sure you offer your customers exactly what they need. Here at The Supplies Shops, you can get stick on handles that can help transport products that weigh between 10 and 50 pounds. We also offer two width sizes, 1-by-17 inches and 1.375-by-17 inches, to help ensure carrying comfort and durability.

How Do Tape Handles Work?

Using handle tape is incredibly easy. Our heavy-duty handles are made from polypropylene packaging tape that is 3 millimeters thick. On each end there is a strong rubber adhesive that sticks to a variety of surfaces. You don’t need to apply heat, moisture or a solvent to get this handle to stay in place. All you need to do is stick the ends on the product, grab the handle and go.

If the product has a cellophane wrap or other covering, once that’s removed, the tape handle goes with it. There’s no fuss when using these adhesive handles, and their simplicity can make life much easier for your customers.

To make the adhesive handles even better, we offer a dispenser box that makes it simple to grab one handle and affix it to whatever product needs to be carried. It doesn’t matter if you’re applying these products for your customers or they are adding the handle tape themselves; anyone and everyone will be able to access and use this product with ease.

In addition, you can order custom adhesive handles for your business. Not only are you making your customers’ lives easier with these carry handles, but you can also promote your business by adding your brand’s logo or colors to the handles. Of course, if you want plain white, that’s always an option too.

Investing in the Future

Plastic bag bans aren’t going to go away. In fact, the movement is more than likely going to grow and impact an increasing number of states and cities. This isn’t a bad thing; in fact, it’s a good way for humanity to invest in the future of the planet.

If you want to help do what you can for customers and the environment, then looking for plastic bag alternatives is necessary — and adhesive handles can help. They’ll help you minimize waste and allow customers to reduce their carbon footprint.

Increasingly, it is no longer enough to offer customers great products through your business. You also need to show them that you care about causes that are important to them. Tape handles may not seem like a big deal, but sometimes it’s the small things that have the biggest impact on people’s perceptions of your business.

Not many consumers are currently familiar with tape handles, so you can be on the cutting edge of offering them something new and exciting. They may not know what they’re missing without adhesive handles, but they won’t be able to live without them once they know they exist.
