Recycled, Reusable Grocery Bags Benefit Local Charities
Ever go into the grocery store and as you are getting your cart, you realize
oh oh, I left my grocery bags in the car
Sometimes you probably go back out to the car and get them, sometimes you don’t.
You probably know, if you leave the bags elsewhere, and you are at Hannaford and you buy a Hannaford Community Bag a donation is made to a local charity.
For the month of January,
Cole Land Transportation Museum has been selected as a Hannaford Community Bag Program Beneficiary.
For the month of January, Cole Land Transportation Museum will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 Hannaford Community Bag is purchased at the Hannaford location on Union Street in Bangor.
Jennifer Munson, Museum Director of the Cole Land Transportation Museum says
We are thrilled to be selected for this program. The donation will help our goal to collect, preserve and display (before they disappear forever) a cross section of Maine’s land transportation equipment from which this and future generations will gain knowledge of the past
Other Locations- Other Charity
For January if you purchase a bag at Hannaford in Brewer or Hannaford on Broadway in Bangor the $1 donation from each bag sold will go to the Eastern Area Agency on Aging.
The community bag program launched in October of 2015 and facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.
Here is more information on the program which selects different local charities at each location each month.
Since I’m the king of reusable grocery bags and have had them in the car for much longer than the disappearance of plastic bags in Maine grocery stores, allow me to share a local good news story.
A few years ago Michelle Rose was brought to my attention. She repurposes animal feed bags on her farm and sells them at the roadside vegetable stand. Great idea, and they are unique.
