History of the Eco bag

PrtScr-capture 3-300x79

In 2004, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructures, the Environment Administration, the Luxembourg Confederation of Commerce (clc) and retail chains, Valorlux launched the “Eco bag” project in order to avoid the use of single-use bags and save natural resources through the use of this reusable shopping bag.

 

This project is part of an environmental agreement between the Ministry of Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development and Valorlux.

 

In 2012, the European Commission designated the “Eco Bag” project as an example of good practice in the field of waste prevention.

Thanks to you, we had a more positive impact on the environment!
