Foodland Pasadena and Frewville eliminate single-use plastic produce bags
Friday 11 September 2020
Foodland Pasadena and Frewville have become the first supermarkets in Australia to eliminate single-use plastic produce bags. Instead, they've fully fit out their stores with compostable barrier bags used right across the supermarkets, in the fruit and veg aisles, for bakery items and even in the deli section. These bags are made from cornstarch and are manufactured by BioBag World Australia right here in South Australia.
This initiative is the result of a partnership with KESAB environmental solutions to reduce the store’s waste and environmental impact. It will save more than 3 million plastic bags or 7 tonnes of soft plastic from going into landfill. Watch this to learn more!
