In honour of Heritage Month, Pick n Pay and the Cape Leopard Trust (CLT) have partnered up to create a limited-edition, reusable shopping bag with a cause.
According to IOL, the bag will be sold at a few selected retail stores across South Africa to promote the conservation of the Western Cape’s biodiversity and bring awareness of the rare leopard.
Pick n Pay says this is their fifth reusable RPET bag in a series, made in partnership with national non-governmental organisations to bring awareness of important national landmarks.
“We are honoured to have the opportunity to support the important work being done by the Cape Leopard Trust in protecting an important part of our country’s heritage. Our customers can look forward to adding to their collection of reusable bags in support of a good cause,” said Andre Nel, the head of sustainability at Pick n Pay.
The bags are 100% reusable and features stunning photography. A percentage from the sale of the bags will be donated to the CLT.
Meanwhile, as part of Woolworths’ trial initiative, they’re focusing on an option that allows returned bags to be recycled, but not given to other customers. This option is in the early phases, and is currently happening at one store in Johannesburg, as per EWN.
