History of Bring Your Own Shopping Bag Campaign

Aeon undertakes the Bring Your Own Shopping Bag Campaign with customers since 1991. With the cooperation of many customers who bring their own bags and decline free bags, we have reduced the number of plastic shopping bags at stores that ceased to offer free shopping bags by more than 80% as of FY2018.
