My wife, Helen, told me about this one.
There is a sign up in the Alliston Wal-Mart and also in the Bradford Wal-Mart advertising a FREE Re-usable Shopping bag for anyone who brings in Thirty (30) of their own plastic bags.
I am not sure how far and wide this program is extending, but I will soon check in other local Wal-Marts and spread the news.
Using Re-usable shopping bags is an easy way to help Save Our Planet. It is much better than using plastic bags, even if you re-cycle. There is four or five re-usable bags in each of our cars (when we first started buying and using re-usable bags, we would often forget to take them back out to our cars and not have them handy when we needed them).
If this is a program initiated by Wal-Mart to raise awareness of the general public, I applaud them.
Look around your home, talk to your neighbours, accumulate thirty plastic Wal-Mart bags and trade them in for a FREE re-usable shopping bag!
