System allows eco-mileage to be used at traditional marketsThe Seoul Metropolitan Government has established a system to enable citizens to buy products with eco-mileage at traditional markets.
The city government has run the eco-mileage system since 2009, giving out 50,000 won ($44.73) worth of incentives to member households and buildings that reduce utility use by 10 percent or more compared to the previous month.
The figure covers electricity, water and gas. This week there are more than 1.05 million members involved in the scheme.
The Seoul Metropolitan Governance Merchant Association and Woori Card said yesterday that their new MOU will enable consumers to redeem accumulated points by using the Woori Traditional Market W Card.
Discounts and a variety of benefits are available when using the card at shops that accept Onnuri gift certificates.
