GIANT ‘bags’ a new program
GIANT Food Stores is launching a new program, Bags 4 My Cause, in an effort to help customers support their favorite local nonprofit while benefiting the environment at the same time.
Each time a customer purchases a Bags 4 My Cause reusable shopping bag with a giving tag, they can direct a $1 donation to a local nonprofit of their choice. If the customer does not direct the donation within seven days, it will automatically be donated to a local nonprofit chosen by the store where it was sold. Available at all GIANT and MARTIN’S Food Markets stores, Bags 4 My Cause shopping bags retail for $2.50 and are available at various registers and at the reusable bag rack in each store, according to the company.
“GIANT, like its customers, is committed to doing its part to ensure our planet is preserved for future generations and Bags 4 My Cause is the perfect addition to our ongoing sustainable retailer efforts,” said Manuel Haro, vice president of strategy, GIANT Food Stores. “With every bag purchased, our customers are helping to reduce waste and support local organizations that are close to their heart and make a real difference in their own community.”
