The TJX Companies Joins Beyond the Bag Initiative


February 13, 2021

TJX has long been committed to pursuing initiatives that are environmentally responsible and smart for our business. 

To further its commitment, TJX has joined Closed Loop Partners’ Consortium to Reinvent the Retail Bag, as the Apparel and Home Goods Sector Lead Partner. The Consortium’s Beyond the Bag Initiative convenes leading retailers, aiming to identify, test, and implement viable design solutions and models that more sustainably serve the purpose of the current retail bag. TJX believes that the innovative solutions resulting from this effort could benefit the environment in many ways and could ultimately help enable a solution that uses innovative materials and an efficient collection system and be implemented at a scale that could limit the amount of plastic waste generated from retail point-of-sale bags, and associated harmful chemicals, from entering the environment.

“We are thrilled to welcome TJX as the Apparel and Home Goods Sector Lead Partner for the Consortium to Reinvent the Retail Bag, further expanding the Consortium’s potential for impact,” says Kate Daly, Managing Director of the Center for the Circular Economy at Closed Loop Partners. “The plastic bag is used across diverse contexts and in joining our efforts, TJX is demonstrating its efforts to reduce plastic waste.”
