Detpak will continue to build capacity to take on production for the majority of Woolworths’ paper carry bags nationally as the supermarket transitions to Australian-made bags across each state over the next year.
The bag is made from 70 per cent recycled paper in conjunction with un-recycled paper to provide a stronger structure which can carry up to 6kg of groceries. All paper used in the bag is sourced responsibly and is certified by PEFC , giving customers confidence their purchase supports sustainable forest management.
Woolworths’ shoppers can choose from four carry bag options including the 20-cent paper bag, with Woolworths’ Bag for Good, reusable plastic bags made from 80 per cent recycled materials, and foldable fabric bags also available at the checkout.
Since Woolworths began phasing out single-use plastic bags in 2018 more than 6 billion bags have been taken out of circulation. Only 15 per cent of customers now purchase a new bag during a transaction when visiting a Woolworths store.
