13 -05-2020 - Topicality

Earlier this year, the Spanish firm from Aragon launched its Oceanis range, made with recovered fishing nets and gear, and now it goes one step further in its commitment to a circular and sustainable economy

10 years ago, this pioneering company in the retail equipment sector stormed the market with its first recycled shopping baskets - ShopRoll 34 and 52 litre - which have led to annual energy savings of more than 100 tons of carbon dioxide. Those savings will be multiplied five-fold from now on.

The firm combines the seal of environmental protection with careful design and the specific safety and hygiene features that characterise its entire range of retail equipment.

Araven launches its innovative “Oceanis” range of shopping baskets and carts made with recycled fishing materials, to collaborate in preserving the seas

The Spanish company will present the innovative product at the international Euroshop fair in Düsseldorf, which recycles polypropylene from fishing tackle, one of the main causes of marine pollution. According to the Greenpeace report, “Ghost gear”, fishermen lose or leave 640,000 tonnes of nets and ropes in the oceans every year, accounting for 27% of the waste that damages the seas and is responsible for a significant death toll in wildlife.

Every Oceanis basket or cart prevents 1.5 metres of rope ending up in the sea, greenhouse gases are reduced by 20% in the manufacturing process and the spanish company will also donate part of the profits to the international NGO, Plastic Change.

This is the first time that a complete set of sustainable retail equipment has been launched. Araven once again marks a milestone in its commitment to the circular economy, recycling and environmental care, which began in 2010 with the ShopRoll Recycled basket.

A report by the university of zaragoza establishes the risk of transmission of bacteria and other micro-organisms from shopping carts

The research concludes that the only shopping cart in which no microbial organism was detected after five months’ real and continued use in stores is the Loop compact cart with antibacterial handle made by Araven

The study “Evaluation of microbial contamination in shopping carts” was carried out by the prestigious Plant-based Food Research Group at the University of Zaragoza

After analysing more than 80 carts of various makes in different shopping centres, all of them except the Araven model with the antibacterial handle displayed a significant presence and risk of transfer of bacteria to users

Eight years ago, the Aragonese firm was the first in the world to introduce this technique to shopping baskets with the aim of achieving maximum hygiene in retail shopping equipment used by millions of people every day.
