Zara says goodbye to the plastic bags in their stores and not just in Chile




Zara will not return to its customers plastic bags, which were now used during the sales periods, and will only use paper bags that will soon be only 100% recycled paper.

For this, their stores gradually add a new format of recycled and reusable paper bags, which also includes the logo recently released on their website and it has not yet revealed whether it will definitely represent it.

Current paper bags will continue to be used until stocks end and plastic bags will no longer be available from February 15.

These new bags, which will be available in stores throughout the year, reduce the use of ink by more than 70% and represent a saving of more than 30% in water consumption during production, according to the company in a communication interior.

Similarly, the gift envelopes will also be replaced and thereby combine their image with the new bags and with the boxes with the online orders of Zara, which gives about 2,250 stores.

All these measures are part of their Green to Pack project, whose main purpose is to optimize the packaging used throughout the supply chain and to reduce any waste as much as possible. According to company data, Inditex, the group belonging to Zara and other brands such as Massimo Dutti or Bershka, has recovered 357 tons of clothing, shoes and accessories gathered in their stores and offices since 2015.

In addition, it has collected 8,973 tons through containers located in Spanish streets and has recovered 1,010 million security alarms and 110 million hangers.
