Recycle Those Paper Grocery Store Bags

Did you know?

I was at Shop Smart and as the clerk was putting my purchases in one of their paper handled bags, I remarked that it’s too bad there is not a way to recycle them. They are large sturdy bags.

“But, you can” she said. First, use them in your home for trash bags. or, bring back on your next trip. If you use them on your order they will credit you for five cents for each bag they use. Or you can take them to St. Vinnies.

My favorite, and super easy for Timber Valley members, is to put them in the Food Pantry box. They will be put to good use there.
