T-Shirt/Carry Out Bags

Grocery, Merchandise and Carry Out Bags represent a category that mostly covers the common shopping or carry out bag. Many of Elkay's T-Shirt Bags are made using d2w controlled-life technology which allows them to degrade in outdoor conditions. Wet Pack Bags (made from white high density HDPE) are used to cover pack item that will thaw and possibly create excessive water condensation or leak juicy fluids. All of Elkay's Grocery, Merchandise and Carry Out Bags comply with FDA requirements for food applications.

Economy HDPE T-Shirt Bags
Bulk-pack Snap-Eze™ T-Shirt bags have always been an economical and strong choice for everyday carry-out needs. Now they are the environmental choice as well, thanks to the controlled-life formulation that enables them to degrade in the presence of sunlight, heat, moisture, and outdoor elements, but still allows them to be recycled with regular HDPE material. These bags are bulk packed and tabbed for use in a counter rack.

Grocery Wet Pack
Wet pack bags are an 'extra service' item that retail and take out customers appreciate, because they isolate cold and/or wet items and help protect other dry items in the same bag from damage. Wet Pack bags are made from white high density polyethylene and are packaged in easy dispensing counter packs. Sizes correspond with conventional paper bags sizes.

Plastronic® HDPE T- Shirt Bags
These bags are used for customer carry-out and delivery of groceries. Plastronic® T-Shirt Bags are available in seven colors and are printed with standard child-suffocation warning labels. Elkay T-Shirt Bags are made with d2w controlled-life additive that will cause the bag to self-destruct after a pre-determined amount of time if not properly disposed of and exposed to sunlight and other environmental factors and can still be recycled with regular HDPE material. Plastronic® T-Shirt Bags are embossed for easy opening, and are conveniently packaged in a low cube dispenser carton that's easy to use at the retail counter and stores easily on shelves. Seven colors are available to fit your particular requirement: Blue, Chocolate, Magenta, Orange, Red, White, and Yellow.

Plain Heavy Duty HDPE T-Shirt Bags
Heavy Duty T-Shirt Bags can carry a larger and more varied number of items. They are larger and stronger than standard carry-out bags. These bags are white and are printed with standard child-suffocation warning labels. Elkay T-Shirt Bags are made with d2w controlled-life additive that will cause the bag to self-destruct after a pre-determined amount of time if not properly disposed of and exposed to sunlight and other environmental factors, and can still be recycled with regular HDPE material.
