Bag Bans

New, 3 comments

Walbaum's is taking an admirable approach when it comes to Southampton Village's recent ban on plastic bags. Shoppers at the village location have three options: bring their own, buy paper bags for 5 cents each or purchase a recyclable bag for 99 cents. While this change is welcome enough, the store has agreed to donate the net proceeds to the Peconic Land Trust. Hopefully, other area stores will follow their lead. [Previously, Edible East End]
