Replace plastic bags with Thule’s Load and Go

Thule, the world’s largest manufacturer of car roof rack systems, roof boxes and accessories has launched the GoBox 8005 – the perfect shopping accessory for consumers looking to “do their bit” for the environment.

The Go-Box is a foldable storage box which can be placed in the trolley in the supermarket, filled with your weekly shop, and then simply transferred into the car boot. 

The average plastic bag has a use of just 20 minutes, but an overall lifespan of over 1,000 years. This realisation has led to both retailers and the public to look for an alternative way to carry shopping.

Peter Barker, UK General Manager at Thule, said: “The Go-Box is water resistant, easy to clean and most importantly, re-useable. Its use on the average weekly shop could save countless bags and as with all Thule products, the GoBox comes with a five-year guarantee.”

The Go-Box 8005 is part of Thule’s Load and Go series, a collection of carriers designed to fit Thule’s luggage boxes and the car boot.
