What's a PC GREEN Reusable Shopping Bag worth? About 99 cents and an estimated one billion plastic bags that won't end-up in our landfill sites each year! "Canada's Greenest Shopping Bag" is made of 85% post-consumer recycled plastic, twice the size of a regular grocery bag, and can carry 10 kilograms (22 lbs). Just days after going on sale, the green bag all but sold-out. Loblaws Executive Chairman Galen G. Weston says Canadians feel a sense of personal responsibility for protecting the environment. "The sell-out of our PC GREEN Reusable Bag confirms it — when retailers make it simple for consumers to do their part, they will embrace the opportunity." Loblaw takes a big step in reducing its carbon footprint with the opening of its new environmental flagship Superstore in Scarborough, Ontario. The store cuts discharges from refrigeration units, that cause greenhouse gases, by 85 percent. A new low temperature system, the first of its kind in Canada, reduces carbon emissions by 15 percent, while recycling heat from refrigeration cuts the store's footprint another seven percent. "Loblaw is changing the face of grocery retail with this environmental Superstore," says Peter Love, Ontario's Chief Energy Conservation Officer. "Effective energy initiatives this store incorporates will serve as a blueprint for more to come."
