Weird Fish to use eco-friendly grass paper carrier bags
Weird Fish, the casual and outdoor clothing brand, is introducing fully compostable grass paper carrier bags across its stores.
Forming part of the company’s ‘The Only Way Is Ethics’ sustainable policy, the move will see traditional single-use plastic bags being replaced by the grass paper bags which will be provided free of charge to shoppers.
John Stockton, managing director of Weird Fish, said: “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.”
The company has launched range of other initiatives as part of its sustainable policy. These have included the introduction of sustainable fabrics such as Tencel, bamboo and linen across its clothing range and the provision of fabric offcuts, old trims and spare parts to fashion university departments to enable garments to be recycled.
The company has also embarked on a partnership with Newlife, a charity for disabled children, to reduce the amount of unsold stock going to landfill. In addition, Weird Fish is piloting plastic-free alternatives for web packaging.
