As part of our commitment to decreasing our consumption and becoming a more sustainable business, we have made important changes to our store operations.We’ve begun phasing out all plastic shopping bags and are now charging $.10 for paper bags; we then donate $.05 to our partner charity: water, in hopes that our customers will join our efforts to reduce single-use bags. To incentivize participation, we offer a $.15 rebate for those who bring in their own bag or purchase one of our reusable cotton tote bags.
Why am I being charged for a bag?
We are committed to creating a sustainable business with respect for the environment and are hoping this change will encourage customers to reduce their use of single-use bags.
Who is charity:water?

How will charity:water use this donation?
