Greentote for Retail | DS Smith - DS Smith

The First 100% Recyclable Alternative to Retail Plastic Bags

GreenTote

Success Story

Modular, moisture-resistant and food-contact safe, GreenTote helps keep plastic out of the waste stream

GreenTote arrives as stores and supermarkets respond to the pandemic-driven jump in online fulfillment sales, BOPIS (buy online, pick up in-store) and third-party grocery delivery services. That potentially has translated into more plastic bags ending up in their customers’ homes and eventually landfills, or worse - waterways.

Recent surveys have indicated that many shoppers say they’d likely continue online buying if items were delivered with less packaging or used more sustainable material. They’d also prefer items delivered in more recyclable packaging.

GreenTote is about convenience and sustainability. From staging orders to curbside pickup or delivery, our sustainable, renewable, fiber-based tote is sturdier than paper, keeps perishable and other grocery items organized and safe, and is reusable. Corrugated is the safest medium for transporting goods in our global supply chain, and GreenTote takes that confidence one step further by being USDA food-contact safe.

Eighteen states already have enacted legislation to ban plastic bags, and major retailers including Walmart, CVS Health, Albertsons, Dollar General and Dick’s Sporting Goods have joined “The Beyond the Bag Initiative,” a group seeking to reinvent the single-use plastic retail bag. The goal: identify, test and implement viable design solutions and models that more sustainably serve the purpose of the current retail bag.
