Coles unveils recyclable paper bag packaging for mandarins

Sustainability

Coles has announced the launch of recyclable paper bag packaging for its Unique Selection mandarins, replacing the traditional plastic net bags.

The new paper bags are designed to be kerbside recyclable, aligning with Coles' commitment to environmental sustainability.

The paper bag packets of mandarins (800g) are now available in all states and territories except Western Australia, with prices starting from $5.50.

Coles General Manager Fresh Produce, Charlotte Gilbert, said: We know how much our customers love mandarins at this time of year, so we’re pleased to be able to offer them in a new paper bag that can be put in your recycling bin once you’ve had a chance to enjoy them.

This sustainable packaging solution aims to reduce plastic usage, with an estimated 11,700 kilograms of plastic to be avoided annually.
