What is Bag Swap?
During the month of April, we trade and recycle your plastic bags (bundles of 20) for our reusable tote! We’re at set locations around Pensacola throughout the entire month, so pick a place that’s convenient for you.
Can’t make it to one of our events? Swing by our office anytime in the month April and we will trade you then!
*Due to COVID-19, our bag swap events will take place throughout July, 2020.
Make sure your bags are CLEAN and DRY.
Why do we do it?
Plastic Bags are constantly being thrown away or littered. They take hundreds of years to breakdown, producing microplastics that contaminate our water supply. Plastic bags are easy to recycle, however they can only be recycled a small number of times before the plastic is too broken down to be reused. We hope to discourage the use of these single-use plastics by providing you with a sustainable alternative: a canvas tote!
*Please note that Escambia Co. does not accept plastic bags in county issued recycling bins.
