Our new bag is green in more ways than one

Coles Marine Bags

A new bag with a difference

At Coles we take responsibility for managing our environmental and social impacts seriously. Our ambition is to be Australia’s most sustainable supermarket and we're always looking for opportunities to make a positive difference through our commitment to sustainable products, sustainable environmental practices and sustainable communities.

That’s why we have partnered with a cleantech recycling company specialised in converting mechanically recycled post-use maritime fibres, fishing nets and ropes into high quality raw plastic materials to help manufacture our new Coles Marine Bag.

Our bag is made from 80% recycled materials including 20% marine industry waste such as fishing nets, trawls and ropes that could have otherwise ended up in the ocean or landfill.

The Coles Marine Bag costs 20c and 10% of proceeds will be donated to Clean Up Australia.
