Muscat: In an effort to reduce the use of plastic wastes, Lulu Oman held a Reusable Bag Distribution Campaign on June 5 coinciding with the World Environment Day.

As part of the campaign, Lulu has distributed more than 500 reusable bags free to its shoppers. Through this campaign, Lulu hopes to educate the public on how a simple decision to do away with non-biodegradable plastics can make a huge impact on environmental preservation.

Going reusable is an important part of reducing plastic waste. By reusing bags while shopping, one can contribute to reducing the amount of single-use plastic bags that become litter or head to the local landfill.

Speaking on the campaign, Shabeer K. A., Regional director – Lulu Hypermarkets, Oman, stressed, “We have distributed more than 500 reusable bags to our shoppers as part of this campaign. Through this initiative, we have done our small part in trying to make the environment cleaner and greener. We hope our effort will definitely make a great change. As responsible human beings, we should influence our family and friends to reduce pollution due to plastic waste in future.”

“Through this campaign, Lulu aims to encourage and remind residents to bring and utilise reusable bags whenever they go shopping. It is high time we refrain from using disposable plastic products that persist in the environment forever. Every individual must play his role towards contributing to the betterment of the environment and the community,” he added.

As a company with strong CSR policies, Lulu Group has always been in the forefront when it comes to giving back to the society. Lulu has also adopted the “RRR” (Refuse, Reuse, Reduce) policy to reduce the usage of plastic bags, in addition to the usage of oxy-biodegradable plastic bags in its store.
