See? Concern for the environment isn’t just limited to the Western world. In Saipan, shoppers who are bringing their own bags get a chance to receive a nice reward.
The totebag (canvans) (sic) bag promotion is one manner shoppers can protect the environment and promote sustainable living by reducing the amount of plastic bags while grocery shopping. For each time a shopper uses a canvas or reusable bag for their purchases, the shopper will receive an entry form for a chance to win the weekly gift certificate prize, valued at $25.
Could this possibly get more people to go with reusable bags? It might make it a more attractive option, although we certainly hope that they’re doing it for the chance to save the environment as well, not just for the prize.
