Mission Zero! Free Reusable Bags Distributed To Shopkeepers In Abu Dhabi

Markets play a very important role in setting the country’s priorities, and sustainability is one of them. In May, Abu Dhabi banned single-use plastic bags, which was a crucial step towards sustainability. In addition, a green campaign recently distributed free reusable bags to shopkeepers to support this initiative. 

Mission Zero Of Abu Dhabi Is All About Protecting The Environment 

The Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD) implemented its most recent regulation, forbidding single-use, oxo-degradable plastic bags in June this year (less than 50 microns thick). Multiple-use bags that adhere to the technical requirements established by the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council must be used in their stead. 

Strong data from the world shows that such regulations effectively protect the environment.

Reusable Bags Are Making People Aware About Their Actions 

A fantastic place to start with any awareness programme is retail. Governments frequently use this industry to draw consumers’ attention to environmental issues because of its size and diversity, be it through the organic movement that started in the middle of the 20th century, country of origin labels that highlight the fuel used to transport goods or the more recent emergence of refill-only stores. 

Educating individuals about the value of sustainability might encourage them to consider it in other areas of their lives, such as their homes, workplaces and automobiles. For example, the EAD installed ‘Big Zero’ containers to collect single-use plastic bottles for recycling last week. In addition, the bins will be placed in prominent shopping centres, parks and event places in Abu Dhabi.
