Products labelled sustainable or green sometimes come with a certain stigma. On one hand, they’re great for the planet and it’s inhabitants, but on the other hand there is often an expectation that performance will somehow be compromised.
Piedimonte’s Supermarket in North Fitzroy is smashing the stigma that sustainable products can be sub-par by being the first supermarket to have Australian made shopping trolleys manufactured from 100% recycled Australian HDPE.
So what makes our trolleys so sustainable?
All HDPE components are made from 100% recycled FDA approved Australian HDPE
All plastic components are made here in Australia, with full assembly in house
Significant amounts of water and energy are saved by recycling material instead of using virgin material
Manufacturing plastic is far less energy intensive than steel, saving energy and reducing emissions
Local manufacturing supports local jobs and ethical work conditions
Local manufacturing and material supply slashes our carbon emissions from transport
Not only are our trolleys good for the environment, they’re top performers too. Our trolleys adhere to stringent Australian and European standards and bring a raft of innovative features to the market. Not only do you get a trolley that’s better for the environment, you get a great trolley.
