Carrefour just launched a design competition for reusable bags!

Carrefour, owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has launched a competition asking public participants to create a design for its reusable bags under the theme “Carrefour is proud of its Bahraini Culture”. The winning design will be printed on Carrefour’s reusable bags used for online deliveries. In addition, the winner will receive a 100 BD cash prize.

Using the hashtag #Carrefour_NoPlastic, every applicant must submit one design, to Carrefour Bahrain’s official social media accounts, that capture the Bahraini culture, and/or the way of life, identity, landmarks, of what makes Bahrain unique and special.

 “This competition aims to involve our communities and emphasises that Carrefour is from the region, for the region,” says Jerome Akel, Country Manager of Carrefour in Bahrain.

“We continue to strengthen Carrefour’s ties to Bahrain, bringing us closer to the community and supporting the local economy. As such, we are working closer than ever with local Bahraini suppliers, partners and Bahraini farmers to provide the best range of products and services for our customers. This competition also forms part of our sustainability initiative and the fight against single-use plastic. Majid Al Futtaim has set a goal of eliminating single-use plastic across all its Carrefour stores by 2025. In addition, starting from January 2021, we began using reusable bags for our online orders and have made them free of charge, encouraging customers to utilise their reusable bags while shopping in-store or anywhere else.”

Entries for the competition must be submitted before 11 February, with the winner to be chosen by Carrefour Management and announced on official social media platforms by 18 February.
