31 Jul 2018 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
The bags are made from sustainable cotton and recycled single-use plastic bottles
Merlin Entertainments has partnered with Jutexpo, a creator of ethically-produced bags, to develop a line of exclusive environmentally friendly shopping bags made from recycled plastic bottles and responsibly sourced/sustainably produced cotton.

Available across a number of Merlin attractions throughout the UK, including Alton Towers, Madame Tussauds, Blackpool Tower and Sea Life centres nationwide.

Featuring two different styles the bags each feature a different design themed around the venue where they're sold.

James Burleigh, Merlin's chief ambassador of Conservation and Welfare, said: "Preserving and protecting the environment and reducing plastic use are very important to us."

"We are delighted to be working with the market leader in reusable bag production to ensure that our visitors have the change to purchase eye-catching bags which are both ethically produced and provide a sustainable alternative to plastic," he added.

Sam Turner, compliance director of Jutexpo, said: "Merlin Entertainments offers memorable days out and experiences to millions of visitors across the globe. We are ecstatic to announce that we are part of this success story, with Merlin now selling our exclusive bags at their attractions.Visitors to these attractions love to take home souvenirs, extending their memories even further and our range of bags allows them to do this in an environmentally friendly and ethically sound way."
