In amaterial and the companys own plastic waste.collaboration between the supermarket chain Netto, which is owned by Salling Group, and Trioplast, bin bags are now being produced using raw material comprised of 20 percent recycled plastic sourced from food packaging from Netto stores and 80percent fossil-free plastic. Netto recycles 90% of its own plastic wasteThe launch of these bin bags means that Netto now recycles about 90 percent of its own waste. The WWF has highlighted the bin bag project and considers it a step in the right direction for the food industry. Major supermarket chains handle large volumes of plastic, not least a mountain of product packaging, and although most of it ends up in consumers homes, a great deal of plastic remains in stores and needs to be dealt with. This makes it important for the food industry and supermarket chains such as Netto to recycle as much plastic as possible. 20'
