The new bag, which can be used over and over, will replace the traditional pinch-and-pull plastic bag and offer customers a more sustainable option for packaging solutions. 

The bag is washable, recyclable at clothes and textile banks, and constructed entirely from recycled plastic bottles, claims the merchant.

The bags are currently offered in all 164 of the retailer's stores across the country for 49 cents each.

Joe Manning, commercial director, Tesco Ireland, said, “We are always looking at new and innovative ways that reduce the use of plastic in our business. This reusable net bag is one way we can do that.

“This is one little help for our customers to use less soft plastic in their shopping trip.”

Sustainability Commitments

The corporation announced a number of environmental promises in 2019, one of which was that by 2025, all packaging for Tesco own-label items would be completely recyclable.

The company has succeeded in getting rid of all plastic-wrapped multipacks and replaced them with plastic-free multibuys. As a result, 1.5 million pieces of plastic wrap are eliminated annually from products like tinned tomatoes, tuna, and sweet corn.

All stores provide in-store collection sites where consumers can easily remove soft plastic packaging they no longer need, including cling wrap or the outer wraps from water bottle multipacks, at the conclusion of their shopping excursion.

Tesco Ireland stated that it has a net-zero goal for its own operations of 2035 and a commitment to reduce all emissions from its supplier chains and the items it sells to zero by 2050.
