Community: Hoboken Green Team to Host Reusable Bag Giveaway and Food Drive

Tuesday, November 29, 5-7 pm at ShopRite (900 Madison Street)

Wednesday, November 30, 5-7 pm at Acme (614 Clinton Street)

Hoboken Girl Scouts and Stevens S.T.E.P. volunteers will assist with a food drive to benefit the Hoboken Shelter. Customers are encouraged to purchase items for donation listed at www.hobokenshelter.org/items-needed.

At each event the Hoboken Green Team will distribute 800 reusable bags, one to each customer, free of charge. The reusable bag giveaway is intended to educate our community on the importance of reducing plastic bag consumption. The Green Team seeks to discourage single use bags and encourage residents to bring reusable bags for all shopping trips, including grocery shopping and daily use. The Green Team will host a movie screening of Plastic Paradise following the reusable bag giveaway and food drive event on Wednesday, November 30 at 7 PM at Willie McBrides (616 Grand Street).

Approximately 4.4 billion single use shopping bags are used annually in New Jersey. Windblown plastic bags degrade our City’s environment and pollute the Hudson River, harming marine life. The manufacturing and distribution of plastic bags use significant non-renewable resources.
