    Helpful hints to remember your reusable bags
  • Keep your bags in your car or purse so you have them every time you go out.
  • Make a note on your grocery list to grab the bags before you leave the house.
  • Get the kids in on it! Have them be the ones to get excited and bring the bags with them when you take them along shopping.
  • If you only have a couple of easy-to-carry items, and are asked if you would like a bag say " no, thank you"  If you are not asked if you would like a bag say "I don't need a bag, thank you." Simple.
  • You are more than likely not the only person who forgot their bag. Encourage the stores you shop at to get staff to remind customers when right when they walk in to get their reusable bag and for management to put up more signs outside the doors with reminders.
  • If you do forget your reusable bags, and have to use plastic because you are unable to carry the groceries out, remember to bring them back to recycle at the Bag Central Station Where Plastic Bags Belong at your favorite participating grocery or retail store. 
  • Remember, keeping the Avondale community clean and beautiful starts with you!
  • Make it a habit! and kick the (plastic) bag habit.
