SM Supermalls, through its SM Cares’ corporate social responsibility environment program, launched the SM Eco-Bag in 2009 to help spread awareness on saving the Earth by recycling, reusing and reducing waste.
Given the issues of expanding landfill areas, and profusion of plastics that clog drainages and contribute to excessive flooding in our nation, SM Supermalls began the eco bag project to promote sustainable lifestyles and less plastic reliant shopping experiences by offering customers the option to utilize the bag and receive a additional perks.
