Skip the plastic and go reusable

Sustainability_Parkrun

Terrifying but true: Around 500 BILLION (yes, billion) plastic bags are used worldwide every year – and over a million plastic bags are used worldwide every MINUTE.

 
Considering it takes 500 – 1000 years for plastic to degrade, it’s no surprise that we’re in the thick of a plastic crisis.
 
In an effort to help curb this epidemic, and as part of the Together We Do Good sustainability initiative, at the MRP Group we are dedicated to leaving a lighter footprint for future generations by lowering its impact on the environment.
 
Amongst a number of other initiatives, MRP Sport (as well as its sister divisions: MRP Home and MRP fashion) has also introduced their range of eco-friendly, super-handy and wallet-friendly shopper bags – available in a range of sizes.
 
For your next shop, skip the plastic and go reusable for a just a few Rands extra. Ask your MRP cashier for your reusable shopper bag. Shopping online? No problem. Simply select Click & Collect and ask for your reusable shopper bag when you pick up your order in-store.
 
For just R3, R4 or R5 a bag, you can play your part in looking after our planet without paying the earth.
