Cut down your oil consumption


We can cut down our oil consumption by switching to canvas shopping bags and saying no thank you to plastic and paper bags. If you haven't made the change to canvas shopping bags please recycle your plastic or paper shopping bags. Along with recycling plastic shopping bags you can also recycle the following at your local store.


• newspaper bags

• dry cleaning bags

• bread bags

• produce bags

• toilet paper, napkin, and paper towel wraps

• furniture wrap

• electronic wrap

• plastic retail bags (hard plastic and string handles removed)

• grocery bag

• zip lock bags (remove hard components)

• plastic cereal box liners (if it tears like paper do not include)

• Tyvek(no glue, labels, other material)

• diaper wrap (packaging)

• plastic shipping envelopes (no bubble wrap/remove labels)

• case wrap (e.g., snacks, water bottles)

• All clean, dry bags labeled #2 or #4.
