The fight for environmental sustainability has just earned a new ally among its ranks, and it comes in the form of a local supermarket chain spread around the island. Valyou Supermarkets, who currently have three stores around Malta, have taken the initiative to reduce the sale of single-use plastic products from their stores, making it the second massive stance the company has taken in the past two years.
In a recent Facebook post, Valyou Supermarkets announced their new move to become more eco-friendly with a powerful image that seems to be targeting threats commonly brought up by environmentalists, namely single-use straws, cutlery and cups.
The company has a history of pushing the green envelope
In August 2018, Valyou had started encouraging their customers to bring their own containers to reduce the amount of waste generated by their stores.
