    Show how much your family loves the Earth by trading plastic bags for stylish biodegradable bags when going grocery shopping.

  • Did you know that millions of plastic bags, used for grocery shopping, contribute to our country’s waste problem each year? Think about how many times you go to the grocery and how many plastic bags are produced just so you can easily bring your purchases home.

    Thankfully, there are more eco friendly alternatives for moms and families when it comes to grocery bags. SM Supermarket, in cooperation with Unilever Philippines, for instance, have come up with the SM Green Bag, made from 100% polypropylene (PP) material, which is recyclable, non-toxic, allergy-free and non-reactive to human skin. These bags have an estimated lifespan of 2 years. Around 3.3 million plastic bags have been prevented from adding up to the country’s waste problem since it was launched in May 2009.

    Each SM Green Bag has roughly equivalent the capacity of 2 plastic bags, plus, you can even use them for purposes other than grocery shopping. You can even take these stylish biodegradable bags during a trip to the mall or to the beach.

    Wondering how to get your own SM Green Bag? SM Supermarket has a “buy one take one” promo for these bags, at its original price of P35. 

    Teach your children the value of taking care of the earth and promoting eco friendly means to reduce waste and contributing to climate change with these little ways.
