Reusable Plastic BAGS

Break the plastic bag habit by bringing a reusable bag on your next shopping trip! Good choices at the grocery store involve healthy foods, correct?

True, but the bags you use to cart your groceries home are also important for your wellbeing and that of the planet. Carrying a sturdy bag that folds up to pocket size, such as those available from ChicoBag, will help you break the plastic bag habit.

ChicoBag even has a community outreach and fundraising program — their not-so-scary "Bag Monster" is available for schools, events or workplaces to educate about the advantages of reusable bags.

Across the globe, plastic bags such as those dispensed in stores are consumed at a rate of one million a minute, yet these single-use carriers will hang around long afterwards, polluting soil and waterways.

Further, the 12 million barrels of oil used in this country every year to produce these bags contribute to climate change.And don’t forget to take reusable bags to your local farmers markets this summer.
