Coop Sweden To Introduce Paper Bags For Fruit And Vegetables

Coop Sweden has announced plans to replace single-use plastic bags for fruit and vegetables with paper bags by the spring of next year.

The initiative will help the retailer to reduce the company's annual plastic consumption by approximately 300 tonnes.

Reusable Bags

The free-of-cost cardboard bags can be reused as food waste bags or recycled as paper, the retailer said.

The bags are more robust and suitable for carrying heavier fruits and vegetables such as potatoes and onions.

Coop Sweden will roll out the first batch of paper bags in December and gradually phase out plastic bags by next spring, across all outlets.
