Saturday is Green Bag Day at Jaya Jusco

Going green to save the environment, more and more supermarkets and department stores are imposing the 'no-bag day'. The latest being Jaya Jusco where Saturdays are now 'no-bag day'.

Strange that many people are still not convinced about global-warming even though it is evident that the days are so much hotter these days than they were years ago.

Anyway, like it or not, having a recyclable or green bag when out shopping is a sure bet. Most times, it's not only small items of office supplies that's on our shopping list that we can just slip into our regular handbag, for ladies, that is.

Yes, save our planet - bring our own bag shopping.


  1. you can also bring your own lunchbox to go tapao rice instead of using the foam packs.. :)

  2. SK, right on! My girlfriend brings along containers when she goes to the durian stall.

    I saw a documentary the other day that says that though polystyrene is bad for the environment, it only contributes to a very small percentage of waste that make it to landfills. Still, every effort made is helpful towards the environment.

  3. I'm so used to bringing my eco bags for shopping, if I wanted to buy something and didn't bring my bag, I'd feel like I can't do any shopping that day! LOL

    Every little bit of action counts. It is up to us to save the environment.

    Most supermarkets have yet to implement the no plastic bag day so far. I keep my own shopping in my car. Just in case any day happens to be a no plastic bag day.

  5. A good move by the Nippon company. :D

  6. Lina, that is highly commendable! Great job!

    I haven't picked up the habit yet. Will have to start immediately to do my bit for the environment.

    Mei Teng, that is wise - having bags available for when the need arises.

  7. Tekkaus, Jaya Jusco in Malacca is also implementing this 'no bag day' on Saturday too?
