World Environment Day may have come and gone but let’s keep the spirit of alive through the year. Magsons Retail Stores kicked off the ‘Reduce, Recycle and Reward’ campaign this World environment Day where consumers give away old newspapers by the kilo for a reward of Rs 10/- worth of shopping. The Reduce, Recycle and reward campaign is an initiative by Magsons to do their bit for the environment and live a more environment conscious lifestyle.
The seven day campaign allows customers to donate old newspapers for a reward of Rs 10/- worth of shopping for every kilo of newspaper. As a continuing effort to avoid the use of plastic bags, Magsons has taken this initiative to turn these newspapers into paper bags which will then be used as grocery bags at all the Magsons outlets across Goa. The grocery bags will be used by the customers for their day to day purchases in a bid to avoid plastic bags.
Consumers can walk into Magsons Supercentres at Miramar and Varca between 2pm and 5pm until 11th June to exchange old newspapers. Magsons Supercard members can donate a maximum of 8kgs while regular customers can give away a maximum of 5kg newspapers.
Speaking on the initiative, Kirit Maganlal, Managing Partner and CEO, Magsons Retail Stores said “It’s a constant effort from our end at Magsons to avoid the use of plastic bags. We want to encourage customers to be aware of the hazards of plastic bag and switch to paper or cloth bags instead. This Reduce Recycle Reward campaign is a small step in our efforts to encourage a more environment conscious lifestyle”
