Sobeys Inc. diverts 720,000 plastic bags from the landfill to make waterfront benches and picnic tables for public spaces along Atlantic Canadian shores

Sobeys Inc. today announced plans to donate a collection of public seating made entirely of recycled plastic bags and heavier recycled plastic materials, such as bins, to be installed in family-oriented community spaces across Atlantic Canada. The first piece, the specially designed Ultimate Picnic Table, will be unveiled today on the Halifax Waterfront. This large table and bench system is much larger and is made of a unique design which seats 20 people, including accessible seating and is built from 60,000 recycled plastic bags.
