R City Mall, Ghatkopar, has launched ‘No Plastic’ week from June 5 to June 12 to commemorate World Environment Day. Mall officials have been distributing cloth bags to every shopper who produces a bill at the mall.

Reducing pollution is our aim with ‘No Plastic’ week. We are excited to do our bit and offer people to use and carry home cloth bags from R City. People who forget to bring bags while shopping will now be able to avail of free bags during this week from the mall, by just showing their shopping receipt from the retailer who doesn’t have the option. We are looking forward to seeing as many shoppers as possible taking home our cloth bags, so that they can do their bit to reduce plastic bag consumption.”
