LuLu Group has plans to expand its workforce to include 5,000 Saudi nationals by the end of 2020
LuLu Hypermarkets has introduced new reusable and paper bags across all its stores in Saudi Arabia as part of a wider campaign to reduce plastic consumption and protect the environment, according to media reports.
According to a report in Saudi Gazette, the campaign has been rolled out to coincide with the Saudi National Day celebrations on September 23.
“We are extremely honoured to be the first hypermarket in the kingdom to launch this kind of initiative that promotes an eco-conscious lifestyle on how to enjoy shopping while caring for the environment,” LuLu Saudi hypermarkets director Shehim Mohammed was quoted as saying.
“As part of nationwide campaigns towards helping nature to thrive, we believe that these LuLu-branded reusable bags, along with the paper bags, will add a new dimension to retail shopping by spreading a big message to the public to become more responsible on saving resources,” Mohammed added.
LuLu Group currently employs nearly 3,000 Saudi nationals and has plans to expand its workforce to more than 5,000 nationals by the end of 2020.
