(PRWeb UK) April 16, 2010
Jutexpo Limited, the UK’s leading supplier of eco-friendly jute and juco bags, is delighted to be associated with a Tesco initiative to help raise £50,000 for the Worcestershire Breast Unit Campaign.
On April 18th, 50,000 pink juco bags bearing the “Everybody Knows Somebody” slogan will go on sale in key Tesco stores in the Worcestershire region – Worcester Warndon Village, Worcester St Peters, Evesham, Kidderminster and Redditch. All profits from the sale of the bags will go to the Worcestershire Breast Unit Campaign, a registered charity with the aim of raising £2.5 million.
Stuart Driver, Community Planning Manager at Tesco, said “We are delighted to team up with one of our regular suppliers, Jutexpo, who are also based in Worcestershire, to raise substantial funds for a local charity. Not only do we raise awareness of breast cancer and help raise much-needed funding, it helps our continued efforts to support climate change by encouraging our customers to reduce their plastic bag usage.”
Barrie Turner, CEO at Jutexpo says: “Being involved in such a worthwhile and local campaign as this brings a great sense of pride to everyone at Jutexpo, and the benefits of the bags are numerous – continuing awareness of the campaign for the lifetime of the bags as well as a positive impact on the environment.”
