SM SuperMalls, Going Green With Bags



A week ago, while doing my grocery at SM (The Block) Hypermarket, I saw couple of people carrying these bags.

There was actually a special booth at the Second Floor of the mall with these bags being displayed. So curious, I approached the booth and started my inquiry.

So what's so special with these bags?
The SM Green Bags are actually one of the projects of SM Malls to awaken the awareness of Filipino shoppers on our worsening environmental conditions.

These bags are recyclable, reusable, can be washed, and according to them, can last up to two years of weekly use. So instead of using plastic bags,which are non-biodegradable, why not use these special bags for your grocery.



The Green Bag is a non-woven fabric bag made of 100 percent polypropylene and designed by renowned Filipino artist Manuel Baldemor.

Polypropylene is recyclable, non-toxic, allergy free and non-reactive to human skin.

SM shoppers may avail of any of these bags for only P35 each with every P500 single or accumulated receipt purchase and/or any proof of purchase at any SM Supermalls establishment. One more, for every sale of the SM Green Bag, one peso goes to a charitable institution advocating a better environment for all.




Use of the SM Green bags also has its perks. SM Advantage cardholders are automatically entitled to two points when they present their card if they use the new GreenBag at any SM Supermarket and/or Hypermarket.

Which means more discounts on your future transactions.

Not bad!

These bags are available at the Green Bag booth at the SM Mall until April 30, 2009.
