PHNOM PENH--AEON has just announced a new initiative to help protect the environment, allowing their customers to use biodegradable plastic bags at checkout counter at both of its stores (AEON Phnom Penh & AEON Sen Sok City) and all AEON MaxValu branches. The material is made by adding P-Life “biodegradable plastic additive”.
It is based upon oxo-biodegradable technology. It will degrade, on the presence of oxygen, micro-organisms, moisture, and soil which is safe and will help the fight in reducing plastic waste. AEON strongly encourages customers shopping at its stores to reduce plastic waste by starting to use the Eco bag or biodegradable plastic bag for a better environment.
This biodegradable plastic bag will be officially in use from January 11th, 2021 across all the AEON stores.
