The Sultan Center offers paper bags across its stores

KUWAIT, January 18, 2016

The Sultan Center (TSC) in Kuwait is now offering paper bags across its stores, as part of its ongoing commitment to the community and safeguarding the environment.
Paper bags are stronger than plastic bags, are made from a renewable resource and they are easily recyclable, which makes them environmentally friendly, said a statement.
TSC’s reduce, reuse and recycle initiative aims to keep as many recyclable materials out of landfills as possible, it said.
Essentially, the goal is to minimise waste, and offering paper bags throughout their stores will go a long way in serving that purpose.
Tom Hammer, chief executive officer of Retail at TSC, said: “We actively listen to our customers and want to engage them in our eco-friendly initiatives. Our customers have told us they want the option of having their groceries packed in paper bags. Many of our shoppers are environmentally conscious and they want to reduce plastic usage. 
"As part of giving back to the community in which we operate, we’re always on the lookout for ways in which we can help protect the environment. This new initiative falls in line with our goal to reduce our ecological footprint. 
"We are giving our customers a choice: plastic or paper. In either case, the most important thing is to recycle those bags so they don’t end up in the sea, beaches, streets, and landfills, or become litter.” - TradeArabia News Service
