Clothing retailer, Weird Fish, has become the first UK retailer to introduce eco-friendly grass paper bags throughout its stores.
The introduction of the grass bags is a part of the company’s ‘The Only Way is Ethics’ sustainable policy.
The grass paper bags will replace traditional single-use plastic carrier bags in Weird Fish stores and will be provided free of charge to shoppers.
Grass paper is a pulp-based product consisting of at least 30% grass fibres. No chemicals are used in the production of grass pulp.
John Stockton, managing director of Weird Fish, said: “We’re delighted to announce the introduction of grass paper bags to stores as the latest step in our sustainable policy, ‘The Only Way Is Ethics’; we are proud to be the first UK retailers to introduce this bag alternative.
“While we appreciate that we still have a long way to go as a company to be able to say we are a completely sustainable brand, by continuing to take these relatively small but important steps, we become ever closer to reaching our goals.”
