Boots Thailand, a leading international pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer, launched their "No Plastic Day" campaign to get customers to do their part to help save the world together. From today onward, Boots will not provide plastic bags on Tuesdays to encourage shoppers to bring reusable bags when they shop at a Boots store nationwide. Customers will have the option of buying a plastic bag for one baht. The proceeds from the sales of plastic bags will be donated to the National Cancer Institute of Thailand.

Ms. Patwarin Purichjaroenpong HR Director, Boots Retail (Thailand) Ltd., said, "To positively impact our environment, Boots is supporting "Thailand Environment Day" by announcing our mission to reduce the use of plastic bags at every Boots store with our "No Plastic Day" campaign which encourages customers to help save the world together. We are demonstrating an ongoing commitment to operating as a socially responsible business and recognise the active role we can play in helping to build happier and healthier communities. From December 4 and every Tuesday going forward, Boots will not provide plastic bags to reduce the waste we create, and we are encouraging customers to bring reusable shopping bags to enjoy shopping at Boots stores nationwide. Boots Advantage Card customers that redeem 200 points pay just 1 baht for a Boots tote bag at participating stores. However, shoppers can buy a plastic bag for one baht. All donations from the sales of plastic bags from December 4, 2018 to January 29, 2019 will go to the National Cancer Institute of Thailand.

Let's feel good and save the world together by bringing reusable shopping bags when shopping at Boots stores nationwide. For more information, please visit www.facebook.com/bootsthailand and www.th.boots.com.
