I am so excited about CVS’s new program to encourage people to use reusable bags. Not only will you earn ECBs by participating, but every time someone participates bags will be saved from the landfill and energy and resources will be saved because the plastic bag won’t have to be made in the first place.
So, here is the skinny! Purchase a “Greenbagtag” at any CVS (mine just got these tags in this week!). The tags cost $.99, which you will earn back in 4 visits!!! Then attach the tag to your favorite reusable bag, so you will have it with you every time you shop. When you check out, make sure the cashier scans your ExtraCare Card and your Greenbagtag. Every 4th visit $1 ECB will print on your receipt to use at your next visit!
Here are a couple more things to love about the program: tag made with corn-based material, an annually renewable resource, Lanyard made from 100% recycled silicone, Card made from 100% recycled paper.
CVS and Target have programs now that offer you cash back for using reusable bags, who is next? In the mean time, use your reusable shopping bags everywhere you go!!!
