Free Resuable Bags in Your Neighborhood


From an email:

As part of the District’s “Skip the Bag, Save the River” campaign, the District Department of the Environment and CVS/pharmacy have teamed up to distribute reusable shopping bags. Beginning January 1, 2010, District businesses that sell food or alcohol must charge you 5 cents for every disposable paper or plastic carry-out bag. You can save a nickel by bringing your own.

To learn more about the new bag law, and DDOE’s efforts to clean up the Anacostia River, please visit today.
