Detpak worked with Woolworths on the provision of a sustainable paper bag, which would not compromise on functionality. They also wanted a circular solution that not only is easy for their customers to recycle, but also contained a high percentage of recycled content.
To ensure the bag, with recycled content, matched customers’ expectations for use, Detpak conducted thorough testing to determine a suitable material which stood up to the test of a regular grocery shop.
Utilising sustainably sourced raw material to guarantee ethical inputs for the bag, Detpak’s innovation team conducted stringent testing, including loading the bag with ice to ensure functionality requirements of strength, and ability to handle chilled environments or condensation from products.
Key in this product capability is also the bag’s recyclability and ensuring consumers could responsibly dispose of their bag conveniently via kerbside bins at home, enabling these bags to live again as part of a circular economy.
