Get Discounts When You Help Recycle

Got this e-mail from Ruby Gan, the fashionable lady behind schu and MYTH stores.

"ShopManila, Inc has always prided itself with being a company with a conscience. We have partaken in the RockEd Education program for the youth and have donated proceeds of sales to their worthy cause. The following year, we have also worked hand-in-hand with the I Can Serve Foundation, where a certain percentage of the proceeds of the sale of the pink ballet flats were donated to the foundation to help spread breast cancer awareness. This year is no different. We have decided to launch our eco campaign to urge consumers to bring their own shopping bags, therefore eliminating waste and saving our environment as well. It is with great pride to announce that we are the first retail store to do this!"

For schu, customers get P100 back if they use their own shopping bag. One schu paper bag can carry 1-3 pairs of shoes, which will be equivalent to P100 discount from their total receipt. This only applies to our schu shoes and bags, other bag consignors opted not to join. For schu and other consigned small accessories, we give P50 off when customers choose not to use our bags. 1-3 fashion accessories can fit in one small-sized shopping bag. Note again that not ALL consignors chose to participate. Thus, P50 discount will not apply to all.

Participating consignors are the following:
Joelle bangles
Rodina accessories
Krusell cases
Bejeweled (Mainevent)
Chroma Desegno

For MYTH, still the same mechanic - 1 to 3 pieces of items will fit in one shopping bag, which means P100 also. For smaller items like the cosmetic and hair care products, customers get P50 discount.

Ruby shares, "I just hope that this will start the ball rolling for the other stores to do something for the environment. It is not enough that we profess that we want a better future for the children; responsibility is necessary."

I think this is a great idea, and I do hope other stores will follow suit. I was lining up to pay for my groceries the other day, and saw how many plastic bags were being used per customer. Imagine, offering to pay the customer or give them a discount for every canvas bag they bring. And then, I got this e-mail from Ruby. Great minds do think alike hehe ;) Thank you and cheers, Ruby! :)
