Missoula Fresh Market About to Give Away 50,000 Reusable Bags
We've been slowly but surely moving away from plastic over the last few years in an effort to help the environment in some small way - but plastic bags are still pretty common in grocery stores. That's why Missoula Fresh Market is trying something new - in order to limit the use of plastic bags, they'll actually be giving away 50,000 reusable tote bags to its customers.
When a customer receives one of these bags, they'll be encouraged to make a small donation, which will go towards the Montana Food Bank Network. And, if you're a business that is interested in joining the MIssoula Fresh Market in eliminating plastic, you can give them a call at (406) 251-7170.
I think this is a great idea. Lots of people will recycle if it's convenient for them, and putting reusable tote bags in their hands for free is a great way to make it convenient. Will you be stopping by to pick one of these up?
