IN THE BAG? MICO SAYS PLASTIC NOT FANTASTIC

By NZHJ May 09, 2018 Green

Mico goes plastic bag-free nationwide, claims first in building products channel.

All 65 branches of Mico Plumbing & Bathrooms are now "plastic bag free".

The change is expected to save 168,000 plastic bags from entering landfill or the environment each year.

Driven by employee feedback, Mico successfully trialled the change in 14 branches in October last year and has now rolled the initiative out nationwide.

Mico says it is the first in the building products trade industry to go plastic bag free and is also working to reduce shrink wrap on pallets by 30%, among other ways to reduce its environmental impact.
