Reusable Bag Initiative
In an effort to limit the use of plastic and paper bags, and their effects on the environment, Ocean State Job Lot is offering and promoting the use of our reusable bags. The bags, which you can purchase in any of our store locations for only $0.99, are laminated for durability. Fifty percent of the proceeds from the sale of the bags go to charity to assist children, families, and veterans in need throughout the Northeast. They come in many different designs, which may vary by store. Customers can also use any reusable bag of their choice.
Here’s a couple of handy tips so you won’t forget your reusable bags the next time you go out:
- After unpacking your store items, place your reusable bags near the door so you’ll see them the next time you leave home.
- Put your reusable bags in the backseat or trunk of your car so they’re always with you no matter where you go.
- Remind yourself when getting out of the car that you have reusable bags. Try putting them in the front seat, or if you have someone with you shopping, give them the fun task of making sure the bags come with you into the store. Avoid the long walk back to your vehicle with that useful reminder.
