Carrefour Belgium Introduces Bags Made Of Ocean Waste

Carrefour Belgium has announced that it has introduced a new range of reusable and recyclable carrier bags derived from ocean waste.

The new range includes three varieties – a tote bag, a trolley bag, and a foldable bag with a pouch.

The retailer has collaborated with Seaqual, an organisation that cleans up the oceans and seabed, for sourcing the plastics used in making these bags.

Around 10 kilograms of plastics are used in the production of approximately 100 bags, the retailer added.

Sustainable Alternatives

The new ocean waste bags are an addition to other sustainable alternatives that the retailer has introduced.

In September of this year,Carrefour Belgium launched a range of organic cotton and jute bags for fruit and vegetables.

It also aims to cease the sales of plastic carrier bags in its stores, in order to remove 700 tonnes of plastic from its operations.
