BYO Bag?

RIS Media this week recognizes the importance of reusable bags…

The thin plastic bag with handles — known in the industry as the T-shirt bag —
is under pressure from municipal bag bans and a growing number of retailers who
are encouraging shoppers to BYOB — bring your own bag.

Several stores have been helping customers to make the transition. Wal-Mart is planning to cut plastic bag waste by one third by 2013. Target handed out 1.5 million reusable bags on Earth Day.

We’ve found that keeping a few reusable bags in the golf compartment or trunk have helped us remember to bring bags and help contribute to a cleaner, healthier tomorrow.
