Today's a Wednesday. If you're in the mood for some grocery shopping, I suggest you hop on over to SM Supermarket. Why, pray tell? 

Well on Wednesdays, in participating SM Branches, SM Supermarkets do away with their usual plastic bags to encourage shoppers to bring their own. Hence, the name "My Own Bag" or MOB Day.

If you get caught off guard (like we did some weeks ago) do not fret. You will be offered recycled cartons or brown paper bags for your groceries. Superb!

The only exception they make to the rule is when you buy things from the frozen/meat section, for obvious reasons. Matutunaw kaya ang papel. Hello. 

This is a nice first step. After sooo many years in the business, SM finally realized they can significantly decrease the garbage in our landfills. Kasi naman, SM ventured into shopping mall-development earlier than other companies but seem to have been stuck in the rut in terms of joining the eco-friendly movement.  For example, parang takot ang SM sa open spaces. Eeee. Don't be afraid SM. Trees are our friends. Promise.
