Donate Your Plastic Bags

Take the excess clean, whole grocery bags to your local food pantry or farmstand. Please do not take ones that are wet, smelly, or dirty. It would also be helpful to the food pantry if you doubled them. For folks who are walking a distance, they need the extra strength of a double bag so the first one doesn't tear and helps with balance and weight. If you have extra cloth bags, they will likely welcome those as well. We are trying to change over to reusable cloth bags.

You can also donate them to thrift shops and libraries. Both of these have a constant need for clean plastic shopping bags.
