As major companies worldwide are in a race to become greener, one of South Africa’s biggest retailers, Checkers, has announced that it will be rolling out new shopping trolley baskets made from 100% recycled plastic, mostly old milk bottles.
The Shoprite group said on Monday that this would see the company divert more than 40 tons of recyclable material from landfill.
The retailer’s trolleys have contained at least 35% recycled content since 2018.
Now it is the first major South African retailer to have trolley baskets made from 100% recyclable material, according to the Shoprite group.
The new trolley baskets come in classic and mini sizes, each made from 180 and 110 old milk bottles, respectively.
