PARKnSHOP has taken the proactive steps to implement different plastic-reduction measures.
Since 2019, we have initiated selling more fresh produce such as apples, oranges and pears etc in loose form at over 10 stores and reduced importing prepacked fruit & vegetables through the "Greener Market" Scheme, which effectively reduces the usage of plastic packaging.
Meanwhile, PARKnSHOP has launched a "Bring Your Own Containers" programme in more than 20 stores with siu mei counters and salad bar. To encourage customers to go green, customers can enjoy a discount offer of $2 for every container they bring along to store.
To encourage our customers to shop with environmental bags, PARKnSHOP has launched "Share Your Bag" scheme at over 100 designated stores. Customers can wash the used bags and leave them at the share station in our stores for others to reuse.
The schemes are now implemented at different designated stores and we will review the operation situation and result and consider extending them to more stores.
