Kruidvat to phase out iconic plastic candy bag

Kruidvat Bids Farewell to Plastic with New Sustainable Paper Candy Bags

Kruidvat, a popular store chain in Belgium and the Netherlands, has announced the replacement of its iconic plastic candy bag with a more sustainable paper version. This decision was made to reduce the use of plastic and decrease plastic litter in the region.

According to Kruidvat, the paper bag is one of many initiatives taken by the store chain to make packaging and products more sustainable. The company claims that replacing 8 million plastic bags with paper ones will save 32,000 kilos of plastic every year.

The Walloon branches of Kruidvat will switch to the latest version of the paper candy bag on Monday. This move has been welcomed by environmentalists who have been campaigning for years to reduce plastic waste in the region.

Leendert van Bergeijk, sustainability manager at Kruidvat, says that this new step is part of their broader sustainability strategy. “We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and making our products more environmentally friendly,” he said.

This announcement comes as many countries around the world are grappling with a growing problem of plastic pollution. According to recent studies, millions of tonnes of plastic waste end up in oceans every year, posing a serious threat to marine life and ecosystems.

Kruidvat’s decision to replace its candy bags with paper ones is a step in the right direction towards creating a more sustainable future for all.
