Description: 

In 2019, Carrefour Belgium introduced a range of reusable and recyclable carrier bags made from marine waste. There are three types of bag: 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, to source the plastics used to make these bags.

Main results: 

Around 10 kg of ocean waste plastics are used to produce approximately 100 bags.
