Bags (grocery bags; film plastic)

Item(s) now accepted at your local CHaRM Site 1005 College Avenue 
Each year, the US uses 30 billion plastic bags, requiring 14 million barrels of oil. Only 1% of those plastic bags are recycled annually. If you use a plastic bag, recycle it after use.

Plastic bags and film plastic (listed below) can be recycled in designated locations at most grocery stores and at the ACC CHaRM.

Start a reusable bag habit and lessen your burden on the planet by using less bags.
