Blue Route Mall in Tokai has embarked on a campaign to reduce the use of plastic bags.

The three-month initiative started on Monday 18 June and continues until the end of August.

It will see the mall encouraging customers and shop owners to consider using reusable bags instead of the usual plastic bags.

Customers are advised to bring ten plastic bags to the mall in exchange for a free branded Blue Route Mall reusable shopping bag between Monday 2 and Sunday 8 July and between Monday 13 and Sunday 19 August.

The campaign is in support of the Two Oceans Aquarium’s Rethink the Bag campaign.

Two Oceans has since 2010 been raising awareness of plastic pollution, trying to decrease the use of single-use plastics. The aquarium’s objective is to create a plastic shopping bag-free South Africa.

Two Oceans will be exhibiting in the centre from Friday 29 to Saturday 30 June, as part of commemorating International Shopping Bag-Free Day celebrated on Tuesday 3 July.

Throughout the duration of the campaign, the centre will also be monitoring sales of plastic shopping bags in order to reduce the mall’s usage as a whole.

Bronwyn Rabie, the mall’s marketing manager, says: “All stores that commit to no longer selling or offering plastic bags will receive a plaque that they will be able to display to customers.

“Similarly, any stores that would like to work towards a plastic bag-free environment will receive the full support of the centre, in the form of simple, achievable step-by-step guidelines with the input of both mall management and the Two Oceans Aquarium.

“While the move away from plastic shopping bags is a change from current practices, it nevertheless represents a very necessary transformation, one that is vital for the long-term sustainability of our environment. As such, Blue Route Mall is looking to both tenants and shoppers alike to embrace the campaign and help contribute to its success.”
