  • What is the result of the FairPrice’s year-long “No Plastic Bag” initiative?
    The initiative saw a total of 15.6 million plastic bags saved with 7 in 10 customers bringing their own bags to shop or refusing plastic bags.
  • How much do the plastic bags at the 25 participating stores cost?
    Plastic bags at these stores are available at 20 cents per transaction for FairPrice supermarkets and 10 cents per transaction for Cheers stores.
  • How many plastic bags can I get from the 20 cents / 10 cents?
    We will provide adequate bags for your purchased items. In the spirit of going green, we seek your understanding that we are not able to give extra plastic bags.
  • Why is FairPrice and Cheers operating at a different amount for the plastic bags?
    The amount is differentiated to take into account the respective profiles and transactions of the two different formats.
  • What are you doing with the proceeds from the plastic bags?
    Proceeds raised from the initiative will go towards supporting environmental and community causes. At the same time, FairPrice continues to work closely with the government and organisations to advocate for the reduction of single-use plastics, such as supporting the Say Yes to Waste Less campaign by the National Environment Agency and organising webinar in partnership with Eco-Business.
  • Which are the participating stores for this initiative?
    With the exception of FairPrice at Orchid Country Club, which has been converted to a dedicated online fulfilment centres, the outlets listed above are continuing their participation for this initiative.
  • Why aren’t all FairPrice / Cheers stores participating in this initiative?
    We are mindful of minimising inconvenience to our customers and aim to exercise a balanced approach by being more targeted as we embark on greening our journey.
  • Can I get more plastic bags at 20 cents?
    Plastic bags are available at 20 cents per transaction together with purchased items. We are unable to sell the bags individually as they are not selling items. However, you may wish to consider buying our Love Nature Bag or garbage bags.
  • What happened to the FairPrice Green Rewards Scheme?
    To effect a greater change, we launched this No Plastic Bag initiative, which is part of the FairPrice Plastic Bag Management Programme developed in place of the BYOB rebate. We hope you will join us in our efforts to protect our environment.
  • How much are you selling your FairPrice Reusable Bags?
    You can get the big FairPrice Love Nature Bag for $1 and small for $0.80.
  • Why is there a temporary cessation to the bag donations bins?
    In tandem with the heightened measures from the government on COVID-19, we are cutting back on community sharing initiatives to minimise the possibility of infections. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and resume the initiative when appropriate.
  • When will the donation and collection of the bag donation bins resume service?
    We are monitoring the developments of the current COVID-19 situation and will resume when appropriate.
  • How can I carry my purchases without the donated reusable bags?
    We encourage you to bring your own bag, or if you have forgotten to bring one, you can purchase a Love Nature bag from the store. For stores charging, customers may make a donation of $0.20 and $0.10 for plastic bags at the participating FairPrice and Cheers outlets.
