Target's 2012 Earth Day Bag
The stats are impressive: if you use a reusable bag just ten times, you save 25 plastic bags from going to a landfill. Over a lifetime that equates to about 22,000 plastic bags per person. This is a small change that can make a big difference in reducing waste and saving money.
The new bag, which encourages you to “fill, refill, repeat” will make your shopping trip a little less routine and a lot more stylish and sustainable. If that wasn’t incentive enough, did you know that you also get a 5-cent discount at the checkout counter for every reusable bag you use during your Target shopping trip? Target's had the 5-cent discount in place since late 2009 to encourage Target guests to bring in their own bags.
