The reusable bags are complimentary in all Sydney Airport stores.

Heinemann Australia has launched new reusable shopping bags across its Sydney International Airport duty free stores.

With the support of American Express, the reusable bags are complimentary in all Sydney Airport stores and received positive feedback from arriving and departing passengers.

The launch of the resealable shopping bags follows the release of parent company Gebr. Heinemann’s Corporate Responsibility Report entitled ‘Think and Rethink’. The reusable bags are an important part of Heinemann Australia’s journey towards greater sustainability.

Meanwhile, The Corporate Responsibility Report guides readers through the company’s ideas and initiatives in the commercial, workplace and environmental areas.

SUSTAINABILITY MILESTONE

Richard Goodman, Managing Director Heinemann Australia said: “We are delighted to take this important step into a more sustainable operation in Sydney. Although we see this as one pivotal improvement in Heinemann’s journey to greater sustainability in travel retail, the removal of our plastic bags is a milestone toward improving our carbon footprint and creating awareness amongst international passengers.”

Future planned initiatives at Heinemann’s Sydney Airpoprt stores include offering alternatives to single-use plastic bottles that are sold in-store, replacing existing plastic glass bottle protectors, optimising recycling processes and the reduction of trucks on the road in order to reduce carbon footprint.
