Marketplace and Price Rite will now offer a 10-cent discount for each reusable bag presented and used at checkout as part of an overall commitment to becoming a more eco-conscience organisation.Customers will be able to purchase their own Bermuda-themed reusable grocery bags made with post-consumed recycled plastic. The reusable bags are available for purchase for $1.99 with new designs set to be released in early 2022.   ~   From Marketplace 13 December 2021 The MarketPlace today announced it will be offering a 10-cent discount for each reusable bag presented and used at checkout as part of an overall commitment to becoming a more eco-conscience organisation. Beginning today customers will get 10 cents off their bill for every reusable bag they use when they visit any MarketPlace or Price Rite store. There are no plans to charge for current brown paper bags. As part of the discount offer, The MarketPlace has rolled-out its own line of Bermuda-themed reusable grocery bags made with post-consumed recycled plastic. The reusable bags are available for purchase for $1.99 with new designs set to be released in early 2022. Seth Stutzman, President of The MarketPlace group, said: “We are rewarding our customers for their efforts and hope that they feel like they’re winning with this offer—they’re helping the environment and saving money at the same time. Although we do not use single-use plastic bags at checkout to bag groceries, we wanted to take our efforts a step further by offering an incentive for our customers to adopt the reusable bag mindset.” Offering an incentive for customers to use reusable bags is another step towards strengthening The MarketPlace’s commitment to environmental sustainability, and its ambition to creating an eco-friendlier business which benefits the environment whilst adding value for customers. By applying the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) strategy, the retailer has identified four key areas of focus where it can make the most difference, including in-store recycling, in-store product packaging, shipping logistics and availability of more eco-friendly products that promote and encourage 3Rs habits. Over the last year, The MarketPlace installed LED light bulbs throughout all stores and began using compost container packaging made from plants at its salad and food bars. Mr Stutzman added: “Our efforts during the pandemic have shown that at the heart of The MarketPlace’s core values is caring for the communities we serve, and this includes the environment. As we continue to source sustainable solutions, we recognise that there are many more steps to take. We will continue to evaluate all aspects of our operations as we seek to continually improve. Our commitment will offer assurance to customers that their purchasing decisions are having a positive environmental impact.”
