Everyone knows the famous Valorlux eco-bags . Eco-bags can be reused and are made from 100% recyclable materials.
4,891.5 tonnes of plastic have been saved since these re-usable “eco-bags” were introduced in Luxembourg in 2004, which is equivalent to 10,879,100 litres of oil!
However, far too many eco-bags can still be found among household rubbish. To prevent this happening, Valorlux has decided to remind consumers that they can exchange any damaged eco-bags free of charge. And if consumers are really keen to get rid of their bags, they should take them to a recycling depot to be recycled**.
