Take the Pledge to Reduce Waste!

Forget plastic and paper! durable bag flat

Going shopping? Don't forget your reusable bags!  Reusing durable, permanent bags reduces waste and conserves natural resources.

According to the Food Marketing Institute, the average American makes 2.3 trips to the grocery store each week. Walk away with five to 10 bags each time (especially for families) and that's between 600 and 1,200 bags per shopper each year. Worldwide, billions of plastic bags end up in landfills where they breakdown over a period of 20 to 1,000 years.

Make a personal pledge to use durable bags while shopping.
