Valorlux eco-bags

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...

Forgotten your bag?

From January 2018, with the retail industry's support, the price of the new lightweight single-use plastic bags increased from 3 to 5 centimes per bag.

With the message "Please forget me", the aim is to get shoppers to resort less to plastic bags and encourage them to use reusable bags instead.
