Green is In!

A few months ago I blogged about the SM Green Bag, a project spearheaded by Mr. Herbert Sy which was initially introduced in all SM Supermarkets/Hypermarkets together with Unilever. I want to commend Mr. Sy for pushing for this project since we all just take for granted where the wasted plastic bags go (especially those that are non-biodegradable).  

Today's an important day for SM as they include the use of the SM Green Bag to its department stores and tenants. They even had National Artist Manuel Baldemor do four designs and this was unveiled today during the launch at the Atrium of the Mall of Asia.

I'll surely put the bags that I have in the car since Miguel and I usually go to SM after hearing mass every Sunday. Sayang ang points! 

Here's a couple of photos from the launch:

  1. We have green bags but always forget to bring them when we go shopping for our groceries. We're going to shop this afternoon. And, I'll make it sure that we have the green bags.

  2. I think this is a great idea and hope more folks will really use it. I recall asking a cashier if a lot of folks now come in with their green bags and they said that hardly anyone uses it.

  3. I really like the idea of having such green bags! I wish i had one of them!

  4. true, I keep forgetting to bring my bags too :)

    @marco get one na! =)

  5. sana lahat ng superstores and malls my green bac, so that we could lessen our use of plastics

  7. Opportunity to help the environment is being delivered right to our doorsteps by SM...Now, it is up to us to do our part. :)
