City Super Group Supports World Environmental Day’s Message “Beat Plastic Pollution”
City Super Group Supports World Environmental Day’s Message “Beat Plastic Pollution”

In support of this year’s World Environment Day theme, “Beat Plastic Pollution”, on June 5, City Super Group proudly presents a brand new series of eco-friendly measures across the Group’s various brands, including city’super, LOG-ON, Little Mermaid and more, in a continuing effort to advocate environmental conservation. Starting from June 2023, these measures will be rolled out in stages, which include the introduction of reusable FSC®-certified eco-friendly paper shopping bags as an alternative to plastic shopping bags, in addition to the ongoing promotion of customers bringing their own bags, lending reusable ice gel packs to replace single-use bags of ice, using eco-friendly honeycomb paper wrap in place of plastic bubble wrap for fragile items, and wrapping meat and cheese products in plastic-free paper. The stores will also launch new multifunctional self-service ECO stations, collecting polystyrene, and facilitating the reuse of shopping bags and paper box packaging. These efforts are expected to achieve an estimated reduction of over 1.5 million pieces of plastic products per year, reducing the impact on the environment. In addition, a portion of proceeds generated from these measures will be donated to WWF-Hong Kong for conservation and education purposes. Adhering to the principle of “Saying No to Plastic” and joining forces in advocating a plastic-free lifestyle, we hope that everyone can make the changes that are needed to conserve and protect the environment.

Encouraging Reuse, Lending for Taking, and a Series of New Measures to be Released in Stages Starting from June

As a staunch advocate of waste reduction at source, City Super Group has launched an array of popular eco-friendly shopping bags, encouraging customers to bring their own bags and reduce plastic waste. In order to further strengthen its existing plastic and waste reduction policies, the Group is set to introduce “Say No to Plastic”, a new series of measures to be released in stages starting from June, advocating recycling and reuse, setting up new multifunctional self-service environmental stations for customers, and working towards a plastic-free lifestyle.

1. Extra-thick FSC® Certified Eco-friendly Paper Shopping Bags to Replace Plastic Shopping Bags

Starting June 5, 2023

In a continuing effort towards becoming plastic-free, we will introduce a series of paper shopping bags, made of FSC®-certified, eco-friendly paper and printed with soy ink (a process that does not emit harmful air pollutants), in place of traditional plastic shopping bags. Available in various sizes, these extra-thick paper bags can carry up to 8kg and are capable of repeated use. Meanwhile, the Group also continues to provide a range of ecofriendly shopping bags for purchase.

Based on the type of goods as well as the guidelines from the Environmental Protection Department, several brands in the Group will also introduce corresponding measures. For instance, the Little Mermaid bakery will provide free paper bags for unpackaged bread products instead of flat-opening plastic bags, and use paper bags instead of additional plastic bags when needed.

2. Refundable Ice Gel Packs to Replace Bags of Ice

Starting June 5, 2023

To further reduce the use of disposable plastic bags, city’super will provide reusable ice gel packs for rent, instead of providing bags of ice for frozen food. Made in Japan, these quality cold packs are safe for use and are available for a deposit of HK$5, which will be refunded upon return. Meanwhile, city’super will also continue to provide ice cubes for customers to put into their own containers.

3. Eco-friendly Honeycomb Paper Wrap to Replace Bubble Wrap

Starting June 5, 2023

To protect fragile items such as glass products, we will use ecofriendly, plastic-free, recyclable honeycomb paper wrap, replacing plastic bubble wrap.

4. New Multifunctional Self-service Eco-friendly Stations

Starting end-June, 2023

city’super will launch brand new multifunctional self-service ecofriendly stations in stores, serving as a one-stop recycling and reuse hub for customers. Polystyrene will be collected for recycling, while reusable shopping bags and paper boxes, along with packaging tools, will be available to customers as more environmentally friendly packaging options.

5. Plastic-free Paper to Reduce the Use of Plastic Cling Wrap

Q4, 2023

In order to reduce the use of plastic cling wrap, the Group will launch plastic-free food paper to wrap bulk meat and cheese products.
