SWMCOL applauds Massy's plastic bag initiative, encourages others to do the same

The Trinidad and Tobago Solid Waste Management Company Limited (SWMCOL) is applauding the initiative by Massy Stores to reduce the use of plastic bags.

SWMCOL issued a statement Tuesday saying that as it continues to encourage citizens to “Get into Green” by adopting everyday practices that redound to the benefit of our beautiful island environment, "we applaud Massy Stores’ recently launched initiative to reduce the use of plastic shopping bags".

SWMCOL says that as a result, shoppers are encouraged to adopt the use of reusable shopping bags thereby contributing to a cleaner environment.

SWMCOL is urging other corporate citizens to explore avenues of reducing their waste.

Massy Stores recently launched an initiative to reduce the use of plastic bags, with customers now having to pay for the bags.
