The retailer will trial a re-usable netted fruit and vegetable fresh produce bag as an alternative to the clear plastic veg 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

Spend your R7.50 once and re-use the bag that is washable.

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.
