Our commitment to care for our planet drives us to implement initiatives that allow us to improve our processes in order to benefit the environment. That is why we decided to launch the campaign: “Together we can contribute to a cleaner planet”, oriented to promote the use of reusable bags and reduce the pollution produced by plastic bags in the planet. This gives our collaborators, associates and customers the opportunity to join our effort to care for the planet by reducing the use of plastic bags and choosing reusable bags to carry their groceries.
Currently, the bags are sold in the supermarket at a good price. There is a campaign that allows customers that use reusable bags to participate in a raffle for a buying order in our supermarket, mini market and liquor store.
These initiatives join the first effort enforced in 2012 to offer oxo-biodegradable packing bags. These bags have a special additive that allows the bag to totally and safely degrade in just 24 months.
