What Is Earth Day?
Bridge Street Market created a BYOB (Bring-Your-Own-Bag!) Party
Starting Friday, April 22, Bridge Street Market will no longer offer single-use paper or plastic bags at checkout. Shoppers will be asked to bring their own reusable bags or purchase them.We believe that by removing single-use paper and plastic bags from checkout, we can improve our neighborhood and make the West Side a better place to live, work, and shop.Reusable bags are both convenient and good for the environment – did you know you can fit more items in fewer bags when you use a sturdy, reusable bag? It’s true! Choose from a variety of reusable bags at Bridge Street Market able to hold up to 50 pounds of groceries per bag.We get it – change is hard! New habits take time to develop, so we have everything you need to start early. Next time you shop at Bridge Street Market, bring your own bags from home or shop our selection of reusable bags starting at just 10 cents each.
I think what Bridge Street Market is doing is great, and I hope that other grocery stores and neighborhood markets follow their lead.
