Stratford Crier November Non-Profit Recipient

Community Bag Program
Big Y, 355 Hawley Lane, Stratford

The Big Y Community Bag Program makes it easy for shoppers to support their communities and environment by buying durable, reusable shopping bags. Donations from this program support groups focused on education, civic, health & wellness, hunger relief and military/veterans organizations.

The Stratford Crier is their November non-profit to benefit.

Each bag costs $2.50, with $1 of that purchase going to support a benefiting nonprofit in your community.

Community Bags are available at all Big Y locations. Look for them at registers and on the reusable bag rack. If you can’t find them, just ask a staff member where they are. They’ll be happy to show you!

The Big Y nearest to you, Big Y Stratford is at 355 Hawley Lane, Hours: Monday – Sunday : 7 A.M. – 9 P.M. You can also purchase these bags in bulk — they make great gifts for friends, family, colleagues and group members. Show them you care about them, the community and the environment! For information on bulk orders, please contact us at bigy@bags4mycause.com.

The bags are made from 95% recycled materials from either nonwoven or woven Polypropylene. They are manufactured in China and Vietnam in factories that follow the strictest guidelines for employment and production standards.

We estimate that one purchased reusable bag will be used at least six times per year. We also estimate that each time a reusable bag is used it equates to five single-use bags that are not used. This means that for every reusable bag that is sold, 30 single-use bags are not used. We are confident in this assessment, as it is a very conservative estimate compared to other findings.
