Morrisons is to become the first supermarket chain to remove packaging from its fruit and vegetables, allowing customers to choose whether they purchase them loose or put them in recyclable paper bags. For the time being, there will continue to be a neighbouring section where customers can still buy packaged veg if they choose.
Here at Paper Bag Co, we are excited about how this could impact how other supermarkets approach their packaging in store. This is a courageous move by Morrisons, but one that should help consumers to be more conscious of what they are purchasing whilst helping to reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans.
Paper bags are a great alternative to plastic for all retailers, thanks to their versatility and durability. They are particularly useful for stores stocking items such as fruit and veg which were packaged in paper bags for years before plastic became a popular option.
For retailers looking to be a bit more creative and add their own touch to packaging, we also offer bespoke printed bags as an alternative to plain wholesale bags. When creating our bespoke paper or eco bags, we can use a variety of colours and can incorporate a design of your choice when creating each beautiful bag.
If you are looking to make your business and your packaging more environmentally friendly, then get in touch with the team at Paper Bag Co today to see what we can do for you.
