Get Your Free Reusable Bags Saturday

The City of White Plains, Citizens Campaign for the Environment and a few local stores have come together to give away free reusable shopping bags on Dec. 1.

Green shopping is about to get a little easier for White Plains patrons.

The City of White Plains has partnered with the Citizens Campaign for the Environment and five local stores to organize a reusable shopping bag giveaway on Dec. 1. There is no minimum purchase, and all patrons at the stores listed below will be given a free bag.

White Plains High School student Max Crawley designed the bags as part of a contest. The City is encouraging all shoppers to use reusable bags because they are better for the environment and reduce litter on White Plains streets.

The bags will be available at:

  • Shop Rite (both White Plains locations)
  • Stop & Shop (both White Plains locations)
  • Target
  • Wal-Mart
  • Whole Foods Market

I find it ironic that Shop Rite is participating in this give-a-way considering the fact that there is no convenient place to recycle your "non refundable" plastics. Like in the eating area where many people eat everyday all day long. To think of it, there is no place throughout the entire City Center other than the entrance to Target to recycle anything. Shame on you City Center which is run by the City of White Plains!!
