Carrier bags in Greater Manchester are going Green!

Compostable carrier bags that double as food waste caddy-liners are the greenest shopping bags you can buy!

Now retailers across Greater Manchester will be able to offer their customers a fantastic dual-use bag called the ‘Green Carrier’ which has the seal of approval from Greater Manchester Combined Authority.

Shoppers get a strong carrier bag and a large food waste caddy-liner for less than the cost of a liner sold on a roll.

Best of all, retailers can buy these eco-friendly bags for 5p and charge 5p, so it won’t cost them anything to offer Green Carriers instead of single-use plastic bags.

How do I buy stock of these bags?

The bag was launched at the GMCA Green Summit on March 25th. Shops and businesses will be able to buy them from this website for direct delivery in July. In the meantime, please join our mailing list NOW and you’ll be the first to know when the bags arrive!
