The WellBag entry from Klingele Paper & Packaging Group, who won the Award in 2019, is not a modern alternative to a plastic bag, but also a trendy everyday companion. Thanks to its stability, it can be used for a variety of purposes and also looks great as a storage bag at home.


What is Wellbag?

The Wellbag is an environmentally friendly and trendy carrier bag with versatile use. Made of 100 percent corrugated cardboard, the Wellbag is an ecological alternative to the plastic bag.

It can be used for a variety of purposes and also looks great as a storage bag at home.



Highlight 1 Eye-catching design

The Wellbag makes an excellent advertising material with its sturdy, high-quality printable areas on the sides. The unique trademarked design is guaranteed to turn heads when shopping. Meanwhile, companies can demonstrate their commitment to climate protection through the printed label with a clear, client-specific ID number.


Highlight 2 Sustainability

The WellBag is FSC-certified and climate neutral. During its production, no cords, fasteners or reinforcements are used. It can also be re-used many times to carry shopping, store things and even as decoration – for recycling instead of simply throwing them away.


Highlight 3 Variable sizes

The Wellbag can be produced in a wide range of versions and sizes: small, medium and large. The diverse size makes it suitable for all commercial outlets, from chemist stores to fashion and clothing shops.



Highlight 4 Sturdy structure

The Wellbag can stand firmly in a shopping trolley or on the floor; it is also easy to assemble and can be stacked flat in entrance or cash desk areas. Depending on the type of corrugated cardboard, the WellBag can easily carry up to 5 kg. 



Highlight 5 Diverse functions

The Wellbag is a perfect shopping bag for small parts in DIY stores, plants in garden centres, electrical products in electrical stores, etc. With its attractive print and trendy design, the Wellbag is also able to earn a visible place as storage in living rooms. 



“The latest regulations from the European Commission and the Federal Ministry of the Environment remind us that we cannot live in conflict with nature in the long run,” states Dr Jan Klingele, Managing Partner of Klingele. “As an ecological and fully recyclable product, our ‘WellBag’ is therefore a good solution at the perfect time. Above all, however, our ‘WellBag’ offers retailers an attractive way to address their customers in a targeted manner whilst offering consumers real added value beyond their purchase.”
