Launch of Guardian's Bring Your Orange Bag 2


speech by Guardian Health and Beauty Sdn Bhd Marketing Director, Christina Low
 Guardian Health and Beauty (Guardian) introduced its BYOB2 (Bring Your Orange Bag) orange bag exclusively for its customers in conjunction with Environment Day 2016. Designed by Marie Sydonie, a former French catwalk model and more recently of Sydonie Apparel fame, the re-usable orange will be available at all Guardian stores from 29 October to 31 December 2016.

"The orange bags were produced from funds collected from the 'No Plastic Bag Day' campaign. This year there are a total of 25,000 bags up for grabs by environmental-loving Guardian shoppers. The beneficiaries of this year's BYOB are Dignity for Children Foundation, fashion designer Sydonie's charity of choice; while Guardian selected EcoKnights, an NGO that serves the community through development-led interventions focused on the environment from education and awareness programmes to research and public participation programmes to consultation. For each bag redeemed, Guardian will donate RM1 to each of the non-profit organizations. We are also passtionate about the environment and the ecosystem. This is why we want to encourage shoppers to use Guardian's stylish and durable reusable bags instead of plastic bags," explained marketing director, Christina Low.
