DURBAN, South Africa, Sept. 3, 2019 (Local News) -Woolworths has announced its first trial of specially-designed paper bags for fashion, beauty and homeware purchases.  

The announcement of the specially designed bags is a part of the company's ongoing commitment to phase out single-use plastic shopping bags by 2020. 

The stand-out feature of the new paper bags is that it is made out of 100 percent recycled paper.  The paper used in their production is recovered from used cardboard and boxes from the mill where Woolworths itself sends its cardboard waste, resulting in a ‘closed loop- recycling’ paper shopping bag in line with circular economy principles.
