SPAR Alexandra Headlands makes the move to paper

SPAR Alexandra Headlands 

Challenge

Queensland is poised to ban the bag, with single-use plastic bags being banned across the state from July 1, 2018. But SPAR Alexandra Headlands supermarket were ahead of the times, with owners Bruce and Sue Luchterhand previously living in South Australia, where the plastic bag has been banned since 2009. Bruce Luchterhand approached Detpak in July of 2017 about making the move to paper bags. 

Process

The Detpak team worked with Bruce on providing several sized bags as viable alternatives to his previous plastic options. The team also assisted in designed paper uniforms for Bruce’s team to wear as part of the launch of the store’s move to paper, which attracted attention from locals and media. The bag designed for SPAR also featured key facts about why Detpak champion paper, making this an education tool as well as a strong and sturdy alternative to the plastic bag.

Impact

Bruce and SPAR decided to go with two different sized paper bags, available for purchase at 30c and 40c, with 5c per bag going toward a charity to keep Sunshine Coast beaches clean. Customers have been positive about the change, knowing that the move to paper is the more environmentally responsible option. Bruce said that customers are even bringing their paper bags back with them on repeat visits and recycling them numerous times.

Thanks again to the Detpak team and we look forward to being pioneers in bringing back ‘paper’. We could not have done it without your teams amazing support. I would encourage anyone that can to ‘#banthebag’ and bring back paper!
