Make it a Habit and Grab It! Don’t forget to take a reusable bag when you shop
Shopping with a reusable bag is the best choice. A high-quality reusable bag has the potential to replace over 600 single use bags over the course of its lifetime significantly reducing plastic bag litter. Plastic bags are a common litter item found in creek cleanups. Paper bags are also problematic, taking 14 million trees each year in the United States to produce a year’s supply of paper bags for retail use. Reusable bags reduce litter and conserve natural resources. FAQ
Recycle Plastic Bags at Local Grocery and Pharmacy Stores
Of the plastic bags collected at curbside, only 4% are recycled, the rest are landfilled or become litter, which impairs our streets, creeks and oceans. Take your single-use plastic bags back to your local grocery or pharmacy stores for recycling.
