Local supermarket advocates ecobag use

Hats off to Prince Hypermart here in Catbalogan City for joining in the fight against plastic pollution with their very own eco bag.

Sold in two sizes at very affordable prizes, consumers who use this eco bag every shopping at Prince entitles them points that will be added in their rewards program in exchange for various items.

Plastic packaging accounts for nearly half of all plastic waste globally, and much of it is thrown away within just a few minutes of its first use according to United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

It’s about time that we face this problem head on.

Comment below your initiatives on how to address plastic pollution in our city.
