Cutting out the plastic

Our commitment to reduce the use of plastic in store continues. As part of this, we turned our attention to the plastic bags available at check out.

We reviewed the market for alternatives and are delighted to announce that we are the first retailer in Ireland and the UK to sell BioBag 100% compostable and reusable shopping bags. These strong and reliable bags are fully compostable and biodegradable. They can be recycled in your brown bin or home compost. The true version of a ‘bag for life.’ These are the little steps that we are taking to try and make a difference.

Additionally, as part of our ongoing mission to reduce the impact on the environment, we are always interested in new brands and new products that are aligned with this ethos. One such product on our shelves is the Obeo box – a compostable box for kitchen food waste.

It comes from a small innovative Irish company aiming to make a difference to the environment. The Obeo box is a convenient and clean way to bin your food waste. Simply pop it on your kitchen counter, and fill. Once full, it is thrown into the brown bin, and a new box is used. It is made from a water-resistant paper which means it won’t tear or leak. The natural paper fibres allow food waste to breathe, which prevents smells. It’s a strong box that will stay intact in your brown bin, so no more dreaded bin cleaning.

Nolan’s are the leading independent stockists of Obeo, so make sure to look out for it in store. Click on this link to see for yourself the benefits of this clean, effective and convenient product – the little box with a big impact. We’re proud to be continued supporters of Irish businesses, and recycling for the environment.

Let’s get sustainable.
