Terrifying but true: Around 500 BILLION (yes, billion) plastic bags are used worldwide every year – and over a million plastic bags are used worldwide every MINUTE. Considering it takes 500 - 1000 years for plastic to degrade, it’s no surprise that we’re in the thick of a plastic crisis.
In an effort to help curb this epidemic, and as part of the Together We Do Good sustainability initiative, the Mr Price Group is dedicated to leaving a lighter footprint for future generations by lowering its impact on the environment.
Amongst a number of other initiatives, we at Mr Price Sport (as well as our sister divisions: Mr Price Home and Mr Price fashion) have also introduced a range of eco-friendly, super-handy and wallet-friendly shopper bags – available in a range of sizes*.
For your next shop, skip the plastic and go reusable for a just a few Rands extra. Ask your Mr Price cashier for your reusable shopper bag. Shopping online? No problem. Simply select Click & Collect and ask for your reusable shopper bag when you pick up your order in-store.
For just R4, R5 or R6 a bag, you can play your part in looking after our planet without paying the earth.
