No Plastic Bag

We implemented the 'No Plastic Bag Day' since last January. That means we have been doing it for almost 16 months. Of course, we faced a lot of problems initially. But I was very adamant about it. My staff almost gave up but I didn't allow it. I make sure that we carry it out every Saturday from morning till 5pm.

Our Bangladesh part-time worker always helps to carry those boxes of items for our customers.


Customers already know that every Saturday is a "No Plastic Bag Day'.
Some has the initiative to even bring their own shopping bags.


Every Saturday, we need to cut those boxes for our usage since no plastic is provided.


Yes! Every Saturday is a 'No Plastic Bag Day'. I hang that at the counter every Saturday.

Be environmental friendly! Go green!
Bring your own shopping bags!
