Recycle Your Green Bags
Author: Amy Nancarrow
Your old or unwanted reusable shopping bags can be taken to special collection bins at any Coles Supermarket for recycling as part of a two-week bag drive from 3 - 17 June.
The recycling program accepts any bag made of polypropylene - and any color - including shopping bags from other retailers and give-away bags from conferences and exhibitions.
Coles has partnered with the RED Program and Victorian-based recycled product company Replas for the recycling initiative.
At the end of the bag drive, all bags collected will be sent to Replas for recycling and turned into outdoor furniture suitable for schools.
