Russian Retailers are Getting More Concerned about Environmental Issues

More and more Russian retailers are getting concerned about environmental issues. “Azbuka Vkusa” (“The Alphabet of Taste”) and “LavkaLavka” retail chains abandoned the use of expendable packaging and plastic bags.

      “Azbuka Vkusa” trading chain stopped distributing plastic bags for free at the box office - now visitors can buy these for 5 roubles apiece. Thus, the retailer is trying to discourage its customers from adhering to an environmentally harmful habit. The packages themselves will now be thicker and stronger, their owners will be able to use them many times.

      Besides, it will be possible to purchase packaging made of eco-friendly material in the stores: “We do not limit the buyers in any way - you can take paper bags or reusable bags, they are different: bags from spunbond synthetic material are the cheapest, there are more expensive options – bags made from jute or cotton”, - the Head of the Press Service of “Azbuka Vkusa” Andrei Golubkov stated. According to him, the retailer intends to develop the infrastructure for separate garbage collection near its stores using the funds gained by the company from the sale of bags.
