Switch from single-use plastic bags to reusable for World Environment Day

Swap your unwanted plastic bags for a reusable bag at Specsavers Ópticas Calpe

On World Environment Day (June 5th) Specsavers Ópticas in Calpe is encouraging customers to make a change and commit to using reusable bags rather than plastic bags to benefit the environment. They are inviting people to bring five used plastic bags into the store during the month of June to exchange them for a free reusable fabric bag. The plastic bags will then be recycled to ensure that they do not go into landfill.

Store director, Chantelle Hayward, explains: ‘Plastic bags are a big problem for our environment as they can end up in landfill and break down to small, toxic particles, or in our oceans, where they are responsible for killing an estimated 100,000 marine animals each year. Making the switch to reusable bags is an easy way to save you money and help the environment.
This is why we’re offering these great reusable bags to Calpe residents this month. Simply come into store with five used plastic bags to exchange and we’ll give you a fabric bag to take away. Our hope is that it will encourage people to make the switch from plastic to reusable. We will then recycle the bags on their behalf.’

Bring your used plastic bags into the store, opposite Repsol on Av. Ejercitos Españoles in Calpe during the month of June to receive a reusable, fabric bag. Find out more or book a free eye test by calling 965 83 53 67 or visit www.specsavers.es.
