Go Green

At Spinneys, we take our environmental and social responsibility very seriously. We always strive to reduce any negative impact and improve the environment we live in through supporting a variety of vital environmental projects.

Trolleys and Baskets
We are actively involved in promoting green initiatives to ensure our active involvement in reducing our carbon footprint thus contributing in preserving our planet's resources. Such initiatives include the introduction of shopping trolleys and hand baskets made of biodegradable PET plastic materials.
Printed Circulations
Our printed circulations also take part in preserving the environment we live in through the use of reusable papers in our weekly and monthly printed communications and the reduced use of paper and labels thanks to more advanced technology.
Reusable Bag
We have introduce a 100% reusable shopping bag, because, At Spinneys we believe in promoting a better lifestyle for the next generations.
You can use this bag over and over again and reduce the dependency on plastic bags.
Be the change you want to see around you!
The bag is available in all Spinneys stores and it is being sold for $1.
Smoke Free Environment
Spinneys took the lead in the Lebanese retail industry by banning smoking inside its stores across Lebanon. In fact, exposure to smoke can jeopardize the goods' quality and preservation conditions which might also lead to their contamination. Furthermore, smoking is not only unpleasant for non-smokers and reformed smokers; it is also of concern given the number of children, pregnant women and physically ill people who just want to enjoy a clean and risk-free shopping experience at Spinneys.

Plastic reverse machines
In partnership with Nestle Waters and Servicorp, Recycling Reverse Vending Machines were installed at our Greater Beirut stores hoping to convince our customer base that bringing the empty bottles and cans for recycling will become part of the shopping experience in our stores.
The RRVM can be used by our clients to recycle all kinds of water and beverage plastic bottles as well as aluminum cans. The concept is designed to deliver recyclers rewards thus encouraging them to follow a green lifestyle and environment friendly practices.
Energy Saving Actions
At Spinneys, we also believe in energy saving actions that not only help reduce overheads, but can also strengthen our brand and reputation, helping improve relationships with customers, suppliers, staff, investors and the community.
