Woolworths and Coles Will Stop Giving Plastic Bags Out - JEM Promotional Products


  • Woolworths and Coles Will Stop Giving Plastic Bags Out

    6 April, 2018

    Woolworths and Coles will stop giving out plastic bags and move towards Reusable Tote Bags in the very near future.

    Coles will stick with its previously announced July 1 end date coinciding with legislation coming into effect in Queensland, Victoria and WA, which will join South Australia, Tasmania, the ACT and Northern Territory in banning the bag.

    NSW is the only state without legislation or a ban coming into effect, but the major supermarkets will withdraw bags voluntarily.

    This initiative by the major supermarkets is welcomed by the promotional products industry and in particular JEM Promotional Products.

    Many industries have been using reusable Branded Promotional Tote Bags for many years which provides many benefits from a positive impact on the environment through to maximum brand exposure so it's great to see the major supermarkets headed in a positive direction. Our range of tote bags such as the Uranga Laminated Tote Bag provides lots customisation option to suit specific requirements with lots of options available.

    Please contact the team at JEM Promotional Products on (02)82051334 or enquiries@jempp.com.au for more information on our range of Reusable Tote Bags and Non-Woven Tote Bags.
