(June 2012 update: BYOBags now on sale at $5 each!) Sustainable Princeton’s BYOBag Campaign is selling a newly-designed reusable bag to help remind people to “Shop Local, Shop Fair Trade, and BYOBag.” The bag sale is also intended as a fundraiser for Sustainable Princeton and is cosponsored by the Princeton Merchants Association/Hometown Princeton and Fair Trade Princeton.
The bags fold into a small pouch for easy carrying – perfect to take with you or great to give as gifts to family members, coworkers, teachers and others on your shopping list!
As of June 2012, the bags are on sale for $5 each to mark the 1 year anniversary of the BYOBag Campaign. All profits go to support Sustainable Princeton. The bags will be available for sale at the following locations:
- Hinkson's Office Store
- Infini-T Cafe and Spice Souk
- Labyrinth Books
- Whole Earth Center
Thank you to all of these vendors for helping us raise money and awareness about sustainable shopping! We also thank Church & Dwight for providing the initial funding to support the bag sale, and Maria Bahlmann, a local graphic designer and typographer, for her wonderful design!
For more ideas on sustainable local shopping, please see our recent post “Turning Black Friday into Green Friday”. We also recommend a recent post by Michele Byers, Executive Director of the NJ Conservation Foundation about why we should all BYOBag this holiday season.
