Food Lion selling reusable bags
Starting on Earth Day, Food Lion began selling reusable shopping bags for 89 cents each.
“There are several reasons why we have made the decision to offer these bags to our customers” said Brian Stokes, Food Lion’s Project Manager. “First and foremost, more and more people are becoming aware of the effect grocery bags can have on the environment. Reusable bags make sense. Second, we purchase millions of plastic grocery bags each year. By reducing the cost of buying bags, we can pass on those savings to our customers.”
The company’s Bloom and Bottom Dollar Food stores already offer similar bags made of polypropylene.
