One Stop scoops Gold for environmental endeavour

21 November 2013

One Stop Stores Limited has won Gold at The International Green Apple Awards for its pioneering carrier bags, rewarding its commitment to responsible trading. The event, held last week at the House of Commons, recognised One Stop and its supplier Exoplastics Ltd in the category for Paper & Packaging Innovation.

One Stop’s new low-carbon carrier bags were judged as delivering quantifiable environmental benefits, as they generate a significant CO2 saving. The convenience group have led the market with the introduction of a new innovative material, which replaces 20% of the plastic with a bio-renewable material made from waste sea shells. This makes the bags not only bio-degradable, but also recyclable and eco-friendly, putting One Stop ahead of its competitors in helping to deal with the problem of plastic waste disposal that is high on the Government’s agenda.

The Green Apple Awards are presented by The Green Organisation, an independent & non-political environmental group which rewards companies for environmental endeavour and best practice. This prestigious award means that One Stop will go through to The World Green Ambassador Awards, to be held next year.
