Centra launches fully compostable shopping bags
Convenience retailer Centra has announced the launch of 100% compostable and reusable shopping bags, available in participating stores from January 27.
Centra is the first convenience retailer in Northern Ireland to introduce a 100% compostable bag, giving shoppers a more sustainable choice when it comes to carrier bags.
The bag is made from a blend of renewable, raw materials and is available for purchase in Centra stores for just 75p. Once the bag has been used numerous times and is ready to be disposed of, this can be done so in a compost bin.
“At Centra, we are committed to providing our consumers with more sustainable choices every day,” said Michael McCormack, managing director of Centra in Northern Ireland. “This compostable bag is just one of the changes we are making to ensure we fulfil this commitment. We are delighted to be the first convenience retailer to take this step, helping to make consumers future shop at Centra a more sustainable one.”
Centra has committed to make 100% of its own brand and fresh fruit and vegetable packaging recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025.
