Pick n Pay adds fresh produce bags to range of re-usable shopping bags
Environmentally conscious shoppers will be glad to hear that retail chain Pick n Pay has expanded its range of re-usable shopping bags
The retailer will trial a re-usable netted fresh produce bag as an alternative to the clear plastic bags shoppers usually place their fruit and vegetables in.
Pick n Pay's Suzanne Ackerman-Berman says there has been a positive response to the trial in the Western Cape.
The bags cost R7.50 and are available from its Constantia, Gardens, Melkbos, Vangate Mall and Wynberg stores.
It's a small net bag. You have your fruit and vegetables weighed at the counter. The bag will be sealed with the tag at the counter.Suzanne Ackerman-Berman, Director of Transformation - Pick n Pay

Pick n Pay has also introduced a new, eco-friendly alternative to plastic carrier bags.
The retailer says that the new bag is the first of its kind because it's the lowest priced re-usable bag yet in South Africa.
The rumours are true: we've started trialling the cheapest reusable shopping bag in South Africa! Like you, we're committed to working together to decrease the amount of plastic entering our environment 💚> https://t.co/hAjbEDMDNe pic.twitter.com/guPf2HRGAO— Pick n Pay (@PicknPay) February 15, 2019
