Reduce, Reuse and Recycle with Us

Join us in creating a circular economy. Explore the different ways in which we can reduce, reuse and recycle. You can look at our Purely stores as waste collection centres, where we collect the packaging waste we generate and where we reuse them or send them for recycling.

Here's a list of our packaging waste that you may drop off at the recycling bins in any Purely store.

Reduce

PAPER SHOPPING BAGS

To reduce the production of new shopping bags, we encourage you to bring your own bag when you shop with us. You receive a S$0.20 rebate when you decline our shopping bags and we charge S$0.20 for every shopping bag you request with your purchase.

You may also drop off your used shopping bags in good condition at the recycling bins at our Purely stores so that our customers may reuse the shopping bags. We do not charge S$0.20 if the customer opts for a used shopping bag.

We accept used shopping bags from all brands as long as it is a paper bag or a cloth bag.

We do not accept large quantities of branded shopping bags being dropped off at our stores with the aim of using our stores as a distribution point for publicity.

We do not accept plastic bags for now.
