Marin BYO Bag
To Our Customers,
With many other Marin County Independent Grocers, Good Earth has chosen to participate in Marin’s “Reusable Carry-Out Bag Ordinance” championed by the late Marin County Supervisor, Charles McGlashan, to encourage shoppers to bring their own reusable bags, thereby reducing environmental impacts.
Starting January 2, 2012, Good Earth will credit customers bringing their own bags 5 cents per reusable bag of any size. As participants in Marin’s new ordinance, Good Earth will charge 5 cents per large paper grocery bag. Customers using EBT cards or “food stamps” will not be charged for bags.
Good Earth will donate bag fees to local non-profit Sustainable Fairfax’s work towards zero waste. Please let your cashier know if you would like to donate your reusable bag credit to Sustainable Fairfax. Let’s work together to reach the Town of Fairfax's Goal of Zero Waste by 2020. Please join the movement to BYO-Bag.
Thank you, Good Earth
