March 9, 2020, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – UNIQLO Malaysia today announces that it will introduce original eco-friendly reusable bags in all UNIQLO stores nationwide starting March 16. UNIQLO is working to reduce the number of shopping bags and encouraging customers to use their own shopping bags.
UNIQLO is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of its business while offering products and services customers can use with confidence. With environmental pollution from plastic waste becoming a growing concern worldwide, UNIQLO’s parent company Fast Retailing Group has set a target to reduce the amount of single-use plastic handed to customers in the form of shopping bag and product packaging at its Group stores worldwide by 85%, or around 7,800 tons annually, by the end of 2020.
