Circular Economy for Plastic: The New Publisac Bag Made from 100% Recycled Plastic Makes Its Debut on the Island of Montréal

TC Transcontinental (TSX: TCL.A TCL.B), the owner of the Publisac, is proud to announce the launch of the Publisac bag made from 100% recycled plastic, and still 100% recyclable, a commitment made by the Corporation this past spring to the Environment Commission of the Montréal Metropolitan Community. Taking an ecodesign approach, with the support of Éco Entreprises Québec, TC Transcontinental is replacing the Publisac’s recyclable virgin plastic bag by a bag that it produces itself here in Québec, made entirely from recycled plastic and still recyclable, to reduce its environmental footprint. This new Publisac will be distributed starting this week on the island of Montréal, in October in the other municipalities of the Montréal Metropolitan Community, and everywhere in Québec by the end of the year.

“We heard the citizens who expressed environmental concerns and we took the opportunity to make the Publisac one of the first milestones in the creation of a circular economy for plastic in Québec,” said François Olivier, President and Chief Executive Officer of TC Transcontinental. “We are very proud to launch this new bag made entirely from residual plastic. I am grateful to our internal teams in research and development, sustainability, procurement, distribution and packaging who mobilized themselves for this promising company project, in collaboration with several external partners, to come up with an innovative solution.”
