Based on UN-ESCAP recent reports on total plastic waste, only 9% of plastic are found to be recycled while 12% have been incinerated. The remaining 79% was either disposed of in a landfill or was blindly released into the environment. Due to this, there are approximately 8.3 million tons of plastic entering the ocean every year. This must come to an end!
We can do more individually to minimise our impact on the environment. If we each adopt the habit of using reusable produce bags or reusable carrier bags, we will be contributing to a cleaner environment.
From 1 October to 31 December 2021, we are running a FREE mesh bag (2 pieces) promotion at all Village Grocer stores when you spend a minimum of RM200 in a single receipt. These sustainable bags are reusable, durable, eco-friendly, and you get an extra 20 Bites points when you use it to carry your fruits & vegetables. Just bring it to the weighing counter for our staff to share a turtle sticker, which will be scanned at the checkout.
Let’s do our part and keep single-use plastic in the economy and out of our drains, rivers, oceans and environment.
