Puregold’s “Walang Plastik Mondays” campaign: less plastic, more savings

July 26, 2022

I am an eco-bag type of girl, and I usually carry an eco bag especially when running errands and doing grocery. I believe that using / consuming less items is the way to go for a more sustainable living.

Excited to share that Puregold has implemented “Walang Plastik Mondays” at all its stores in the National Capital Region. The supermarket will also give Php1 cashback for every eco bag used by Perksand Tindahan Ni Aling Puring members, who can earn up to Php5 in savings for every transaction.

The launch event was held last July 25th at the Puregold store in Alphaland Southgate Mall.

Did you know that the world produces about 300 million tons of plastic every year and most of these are single-use? These single-use plastics don’t decompose and turn into microplastics, which mostly end up in the world’s oceans and threaten marine life.  Single-use plastics include plastic grocery bags, water and soda bottles, and packaging straws.

Puregold customers have been making more sustainable choices with a growing usage of eco bags, resulting in a decline of almost 40% in the company’s purchase of single- use plastic bags in 2021. Almost half of Puregold stores have either discontinued the use of single-use plastic bags or transitioned to more sustainable materials such as recycled carton boxes or eco bags.
To date, all Puregold stores are geared towards conversion to 100% LED main lighting to reduce energy consumption. Further, Puregold’s 135 wastewater treatment facilities are compliant with government regulations, as it also ventures into Rainwater Catchment, Gray Water reuse and other water savings and mitigating measures to lessen the company’s impact on water resources. Meanwhile, migration of business’ logistics requirements to optimum cross-dock operations efficiency is in position to help
reduce carbon emission by an estimated 36%.
