USE Recycled, Re-usable Shopping Bags
Receive a FREE Life is good recycled, reusable shopping bag with each web purchase of $50 of more (Earth Day promotion continues through April 22). This is a really simple way to be a good steward of our big, colorful world. For more information, visit our web site.
Several US cities and many countries are taking the lead in banning, or have plans to ban or tax the use of non-biodegradable plastic bags. The list includes:
San Francisco, Washington, DC (proposed ban), Paris, France (partial ban), Israel, China, South Africa, Taiwan, Singpore. New York and New Jersey require stores that use plastic bags to also offer a recycling program. It is important to keep the plastic out of our landfills. Plastic bags do not biodegrade. The solution is simple -- keep several re-usable shopping bags in your car and you are ready to shop.
Bring in your own shopping bag to One World Shoppe and we will give you a bag credit of 25 cents. This is simply the cost of our bags. We pass the savings along to you if you don't take a paper bag. This is a win/win.
