Green Minded Me: Biodegradable SM Plastic Bags

My mom asked me to buy something for my cousin, Patrick.  He lives in Bohol, and since we are going there tomorrow, my mom decided to give him a little something.

Since I needed to go to SM Megamall today for my thesis, I then decided to just pass by their department store to buy Patrick his gift.

So I went around the department store, rummaging about every stall in the Men’s Wear department, and, after finding the perfect (I hope) tee for Patrick, I paid at the counter.  And then, something caught my attention.  A biodegradable plastic bag from SM.  Cool (in a geeky way).

Finally, SM thought of this very brilliant idea.  Just to give you a little idea how SM impacts our environment, my Environmental Engineering prof said that in every major landfill in the country she visited so far, one could really see that majority of the plastic wastes are either colored yellow or blue.  Yellow for SM supermarket plastic bags, and blue for SM department store plastic bags.

Imagine the environmental implication of SM’s move to use “green” plastic bags for their department store!  I hope they’d continue on and use “green” plastic bags for their supermarket as well!

Five green stars to SM for this!
