Statement from Coles and Woolworths r
Woolworths has worked with RMIT University to study the environmental impact of many different types of shopping bags over their life cycle, including paper and biodegradable types, and the conclusion was that green bags reused more than 100 times remain the best environmental option for shoppers.
Woolworths have produced a variety of materials, including key rings and shopping list pads, which include messages to remind people to take their green bags on every shopping trip. We ar timberland e also aware that many people use green bags outside of the supermarket which further reduces th timberland eir environmental impact.
Last year we introduced a whole range of reusable bags include smaller pouch and thicker plastic bags which we hope will further encourage people to use less standard plastic checkout bags.
