Shop.able Carriers, a line of recyclable, reusable boxes for supermarkets that replace plastic shopping bags, are now available to deliver consumers a more sustainable and convenient packaging solution for everyday grocery shopping. The durable, stackable boxes – designed and manufactured by sustainable fibre-based packaging leader DS Smith – feature the company’s patented, food-safe, and water-resistant Greencoat®  coating technology, giving consumers an affordable alternative to hard-to-recycle plastic bags. Shop.able Carriers are reusable, moisture-resistant, modular, and 100% recyclable made from renewable resources.

Shop.able’s first user, a regional U.S. supermarket chain, is on pace to replace up to 100,000 plastic bags in its first year of selling the boxes in its stores. Supermarkets can create custom branded boxes, as well as incorporate sponsored logos and messaging from other partner brands. Individual Shop.able Carrier boxes sell at retail price points similar to reusable plastic totes, with each box having the capacity to replace between 5 and 7 plastic bags. Along with having them in checkout retail sales, supermarkets can also use Shop.able Carriers as a loyalty program benefit in online curbside pick-up orders.

“The Shop.able Carrier product line gives consumers the ability to help remove the billions of plastic bags used across the United States each year while at the same time delivering convenience and sustainability to consumers’ day-to-day shopping experience,” said DS Smith Global Customer Business Unit Director Steve Cooper. “This kind of innovative, sustainable packing solution is what more communities need to stem the tide of hard-to-recycle plastics and move away from single-use plastic bags.”

DS Smith’s North America Packaging and Paper (NAPP) division produces Shop.able Carriers at its U.S. speciality packaging plants. Company designers developed the intuitive, shopper-friendly box product line by reworking industrial packaging solutions DS Smith NAPP uses in the poultry and produce industries.
