Plastic Bags at Legault's to Cloth Bags

Science/Enviornment

(continued)

Legault's Independent Grocers is about to begin a program to encourage the use of cloth bags or bins as an alternative to plastic bags.

"We are trying to help reduce or eliminate the plastic bags that are ending up in the landfill," explains Marcel Legault. "We will start charging five cents a bag for plastic bags on April 22nd, Earth Day. Prior to that, all PC reusable bags will be 50 per cent (50%) off from April 16 to 26 to encourage people to stock up on the cloth bags."

On April 7th, the Sea Cadets will also be doing the annual garbage clean-up on the property around the store. In return for their help, Legault's always make a sizeable donation to the Cadets and there is a pizza party afterward in the store's Community Room.

"The store will open again on Tuesday, May 5th at 8:00 a.m.," Legault says, "but the Pharmacy and Garden centre will remain open on Monday from 9-6 p.m.

The plan behind the renovations is to offer an even wider variety of food products and widen the aisles to make for easier shopping
