WHAT WE SAY:
The sentiment behind the plastic ‘bag for life’ is understandable: use one bag forever and skip thousands of single-use carriers. But the reality is they contain three times as much plastic as their single-use counterparts and they’ve significantly contributed to rising levels of plastic use among supermarkets.
In response, AB Group Packaging and Billerud have created a bag for life using FibreForm, a paper-like material which is stronger and more elastic than paper and, crucially, plastic-free. This is a bag for life we’d be happy to be seen with.
