Bag for life promotion to put pay to plastic



Kingfisher Fish & Chips in Plymouth, Devon, is helping to fight the war against plastic with a special bag for life promotion this March and April.


Throughout the two months, customers spending over £20 will receive a free bespoke Kingfisher thermal insulated bag for life.

The bags, which are usually sold in the shop for £2.50 or given free with large party orders, are designed to be used in place of plastic bags. Not only do the bags keep customers’ delicious fish and chips warm but Kingfisher will replace them for free when they eventually wear out.

Kingfisher owner Craig Maw comments: “It’s scary to think that if we don’t reduce our plastic consumption, there’s a danger that eventually there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. We’re always looking at how we can use more environmentally friendly packaging in the shop. Offering thermal insulated bags for life is just one of the ways we are doing our bit to protect the oceans. So we’re urging customers to make the most of this promotion.

“The bags will keep their fish supper warm and help cut the amount of plastic pollution, ensuring we can all enjoy fish and chips for years to come – what’s not to love?”

Kingfisher sources its bag for life from Fife-based Textile Care Supplies and they cost approximately £2.50 each based on an order of 1,000.

Facts

IT'S A WRAP

Fish and chips was traditionally wrapped in old newspaper up until the 1980s when it was declared unsafe for food to come into contact with newspaper ink without grease-proof paper in between.
