Phone company backs green shopping

| 10/06/2010

(CNS): Members of staff at LIME are backing the “Bring your own bag” initiative instigated by Cayman BECOME which started at Grand Cayman’s three major supermarkets yesterday. The telecommunications firm has issued every one of its employees with their own re-usable shopping bags to help staff get started on the right foot. From now on Fosters, Kirks and Hurleys are all charging 5 cents for their new biodegradable plastic bags as part of an island wide initiative to reduce the more than 12 million bags which go to the George Town landfill every year.

Cayman BECOME will also be handing out reusable bags to all shoppers between 10 and12 noon this Saturday morning.
