Heywood Advertiser to help Market Launch it's Hessian Bags
A message to all our customers: |
Following on from our last letter regarding the harmful effects of plastic carrier bags to the environment, HEYWOOD MAGIC MARKETíS TRADERS in line with their commitment and responsibilities to the local community have decided to stop issuing plastic carrier bags from the 31st July. This policy will not affect packaging, particularly in respect of food which for hygiene reasons will packaged as normal. The change is only in respect of plastic carrier bags.
We have asked the Heywood Advertiser to help us distribute the 500 Hessian carrier bags and they have kindly agreed to do so. On the 24th July a voucher will be printed in the Advertiser and if you are one of the first 500 to come into the market with this voucher you will be given a free bag. After the 500 have been issued, we have a further supply which can be purchased at the subsidised price of £1.00 each. In addition the Traders will be selling brown paper carriers which are priced at 10p and 15p.
The recycling bins for clean used plastic carrier bags will still be operational and customers are welcome to place used bags in them or in case of need take one for their shopping.
Feedback so far from customers continues to be very positive and we hope all our customers will respect and share our commitment by joining with us in this initiative to help the local community and environment.
