Go Green

Overview

In 2008, Pay-Less Supermarkets proudly launched the "Pay-Less Goes Green" campaign. This campaign was established to fulfill our social responsibility to help improve and preserve Guam's environment. As a proactive corporate citizen, Pay-Less added two key components to the campaign: Mission Zero Bags Program and Recycling Program.

Mission Zero Bags Program

On January 25, 2012, Pay-Less Supermarkets proudly launched the Mission Zero Bags Program - "M0B". The program was created to help reduce the amount of plastic bags on Guam. By doing so, Pay-Less Supermarkets does not distribute any plastic bags on Wednesdays and instead encourages its customers to use reusable bags.

M0B Kids Campaign

In 2014, Pay-Less Supermarkets proudly launched the M0B kids Campaign as an expansion of the Mission Zero Bags Program. The purpose of the M0B Kids Campaign is to educate and encourage "green" healthy habits of change in the younger generation to be eco-friendly.

Recycling Program

The purpose of the Recycling Program is to create healthy recycling habits in the community and to support local schools by donating aluminum cans collected from the Pay-Less store chains.

Pay-Less Supermarkets is currently recycling aluminum cans and plastic bottles. The company has teamed up with a local non-profit organization, I*Recycle in raising funds for local schools by donating aluminum cans. The schools in turn exchange the cans for money that will go towards their school.
