Half million tonnes of rPET will be used in these Waitrose shopping bags

Waitrose has joined forces with reusable bag manufacturer Jutexpo and designer Emma Bridgewater to create a designer rPET shopping bag made entirely from recycled plastic bottles.

On sale to raise money for The Prince’s Countryside Fund, the bags will use half a million bottles in total.

The supermarket said each bag would use the rPET produced from seven plastic bottles. Waitrose said it expects more of its reusable shopping bags to be made from rPET in future.
