Reusable bags

Reusable bags are the most environmentally friendly option and can help reduce single use plastic.

Using the blue reusable bag for paper and the white reusable bag for other recycling will help you reduce global warming and save money. 

When ordering blue and white bags online, make sure that you choose the reusable bags option. 

Trade advice: If you have a roll of clear sacks that you no longer need, give them to family or friends for their recycling or return them to any local library for someone else to use.
