This even includes reducing wasteful shopping bags and product packaging by 85 percent, or roughly 7,800 tons annually, by the end of 2020.

On September 1st, Uniqlo stores in 12 markets worldwide will begin using eco-friendly paper bags made of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified recycled paper, while they will also be selling branded eco-friendly reusable bags for $0.10 per paper bag starting in January of 2020.
