(8/19/2012)

Taking governor Made Mangku Pastika’s publicly announced goal of making Bali plastic free, Carrefour Supermarkets have joined forces with the Bali Regeneration Foundation (Yayasan Regenerasi Bali) and taken definitive steps to work towards the elimination of plastic shopping bags.

Effective July 1, 2012, shoppers at Carrefour in Bali were given the option of bringing home their purchases in reusable cotton bags on sale at the supermarket or purchasing plastic bags. Shoppers can also opt to bring plastic bags from home recycled from past store visits. Most importantly, gone are the days of free, single-use plastic bags that once used form a part of the island’s natural environment for centuries to come.

Gerardus Gemuruh, general manager of Carrefour Bali, explaining the significance of this move, said: “On Bali, there are over 15 million plastic bags distributed daily. By stopping the use of plastic bags, Carrefour and Yayasan Regenerasi Bali will stop over 350,000 plastic bags per month from going into the environment. This will be a great benefit to both people’s health and the environment.“

Regenerating Bali is encouraging the public and local businesses to understand the financial waste and environmental destruction caused by the used of plastic bags. The Foundation has launched educational programs at Carrefour on how to shop without using plastic bags and to be aware of the dangers posed to health and the environment by the use of plastics.
