If you’re a shopper at the Waterworks Market District you’ll want to make sure you have reusable bags handy for your next trip.
Starting Wednesday, that location will stop using all single-use plastic bags as it moves toward a greener future.
“Each year, Americans use 14 billion plastic shopping bags. Ninety nine percent of those bags either go to the landfill or litter the environment are discarded after a single use, creating a serious problem throughout the country and around the world,” the company said.
Reusable plastic bags will be available for purchase at a cost of 99 cents, or paper bags can be bought for 10 cents each.
