Pathmark (recycling and reusable bags)

We dropped by a local Pathmark supermarket near our house and I found a plastic bag recycling bin in the store. Pathmark stores are in the Northeastern side of the United States and most of their stores are in the states of New York, New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware.

Here is what the plastic bag recycling bin looks like. It's similar to what I found in Staples and Lowe's.
Pathmark also offers reusable bags for 99 cents each and they have several designs as shown below. I found their reusable bags sturdy as compared to other reusable bags. It also appeals to nature lovers since the designs have plants and animals on them.

You are just going to love collecting all of the Elizabeth Haub Foundation reusable shopping bags. I have quite a collection, every one since they first started being sold by Great A&P family of banner supermarkets several years ago. They just last and last, and make both a colorful and an environmentally friendly statement.
Also love the 2 cents credit I get each time I use one of my bags.

I have my crew of five trader joes bags I use every time I shop! I love knowing how many bags I have saved over the past 2 years. It is really amazing when you do the math!!

In Toronto they charge for a plastic bag like 5 cents. It's crazy. I am a big fan of recycling! I teach my kids to help our environment!

I sell Rubber Mulch. It is environment friendly product recycled from 100% scrap tires.

We save up the cans/bottles and go together on afternoons and recycle them! It helps teach the children the importance of helping the environment!
