THE MALLS WOOD GREEN & WALTHAMSTOW GO GREEN WITH ENVIROMALL WEEK

THE MALL WOOD GREEN GOES GREEN WITH ITS ENVIROMALL WEEK

The Mall Wood Green launched its Enviromall Week on the 5th June, World Environment Day, to encourage customers to go green, reuse, recycle and be more environmentally friendly.

 

This year the focus of Enviromall Week was to tackle the overuse of plastic bags. Every year more than 10 billion plastic bags are used by shoppers with the majority ending up in landfill sites and take hundreds of years to break down.

 

The Mall is tackling this problem by staging its Great British Bag Swap that will be taking place from Sunday June 8th. Shoppers can swap 10 plastic carrier bags at the centre’s Ask Me Point for their own free cotton shopper bag for life. The mall’s environmental campaign is well timed as plans to introduce a 5p charge for carrier bags in England hit the headlines.

 

The Mall held its own Enviromall Day on Sunday June 15th with an eco-themed art activity FREE for families to take part in.

The fun family event saw creative children and families create their own unique Bag for Life with the help of a professional artist from Zinfinity.

 

The Mall also ran a hugely successful art competition where local school children were invited to create an eco-themed design. The winning design has been printed on hundreds of cotton shopper bags for life which are available for free in the Great British Bag Swap. The winning child won a £50 gift voucher and their school won £250 worth of art equipment.

 

Michael Thompson, General Manager at The Mall Wood Green, said: “This year our Enviromall Week was dedicated to tackling the overuse of plastic bags and our Great British Bag Swap is aimed at encouraging shoppers to reuse the bags for life we are giving away. We also have top tips for how shoppers can reuse plastic bags they already have to try and reduce the amount sent to landfill.”
