Happy Earth Day (and a freebie)!

These are the new reusable bags from Wegmans. Aren't they cute? I have some of their original reusable bags, which are plain black with the Wegmans logo. I've been eying buying some of the the new cute ones (just 99 cents each), but truth be told, I am not in a good habit of using them. Either they are in the car and I forget to bring them in the store, or I use them, bring in the groceries, and the bags remain somewhere in the house (which is the case right now).

Well, you can get one of these cute bags -- FREE! On Saturday, April 25, from 11 AM - 3 PM, Wegmans will be showing off their products and programs that promote sustainability through reduce, reuse, and recycle efforts. If you bring a tightly filled bag of plastic bags to recycle, they'll give you a reusable bag free! (Limit one per household.)

I've got my bag of plastic bags ready to go! Maybe having a cuter reusable bag will make me remember to use them more often.

Oooh, thank you so much for promoting that. I LOVE free stuff. I was at Wegman's last week and I admired the bags of the person behind me. They were those. SHE told me they were 39 cents with a Wegman's card and I got all excited. Noone else knew anything about that, so I skipped it, but for free? I'll even brave their parking lot on Saturday.

Ooh wait...NEVER MIND. I won't be home then. DARN!

Thanks for the heads up on the bag. I saw those bags and was lamenting about my staid black bags. Now I've got to scrape together enough plastic bags to get one of the new bags.

I keep one on the floor of my passenger side. It reminds me to use it. I use mine the most at the Public Market. I need to go get me a free bag this week!Thnaks.

I miss wegmans!! I swear I "designed" my bags before I ever saw the Wegmans bags; I guess great minds think alike. Having cute bags greatly increases the chances that you'll bring them from the car to the store!
