Our second Make the Difference day
Each of our Make the difference days will champion specific social and environmental issues, saying what Sainsbury's is doing to address it and providing simple ways for customers to get involved. If we all act together we can really make the difference.
Our first Make the Difference day was a huge success. We gave away over six million re-usable 'Bags for Life' and we have seen a significant increase use of reusable bags since the event.
Our next Make the Difference day will be held on Tuesday 29 May. To truly make the difference, we need to continue to change our habits by reusing carrier bags every shopping trip, reducing the number of plastic bags used.
Helping you care for the environment free Bag for Life on Tuesday 29 May
Pack your shopping in our reusable bags on Tuesday 29 May 2007 and well give you them for free. Our Bags for Life usually cost 10p each and theyre made from 100% recycled material.
This bag has been designed to be used again and again. When it gets worn out, just return it to the cashier when you pay for your shopping and well replace it for free. These old carrier bags will then be recycled into new ones.
Last year we saw a 25% increase in shoppers reusing their carrier bags, and 1,000 tonnes of carrier bags were collected from our instore recycling points. Together we can reduce the impact on the environment and make the difference.
