Market's "Go Green, Feel Good" campaign reduces plastic bag use
Davis Farmers Market "Go Green, Feel Good" campaign takes a stand against plastic bags by showing shoppers a better way. The City of Davis "Single-Use Carryout Bag Ordinance" went into effect on July 1, banning single-use plastic bags at all retail, restaurant and city facilities. Even though the ordinance exempts plastic bags used for bulk items–produce, candy, nuts, cereals, donuts, cookies, etc.–and for meat, frozen food and potted plants, the Market is promoting and selling resuable produce bags to promote shopping without using plastic bags whenever you can.
Shoppers can purchase the bags in packages of three (three bags for $3) at the Market Shed at the Wednesday and Saturday Markets until supplies run out.
Want to know how to shop the Market without using plastic bags? Here's how. Thanks to Diane Parro for hosting our video!
