Shopping Bags for Sale at City Hall
Reusable Shopping Bags - $2.00 Each

More than 380 billion plastic bags are used in the United States every year. Of those, approximately 100 billion are plastic shopping bags, which cost retailers about $4 billion annually.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, only 1% of plastic bags were recycled in 2000.

What are the benefits of reusable bags?

  • They have a much lower life cycle impact than any single-use bag
  • Hold around twice as many items as plastic bags
  • Easier to carry as they have more comfortable handles
  • Won't burst under the weight of heavy shopping items such as soft drinks
  • Reduce the number of plastic bags that are produced, recycled and disposed of

Buy your Re-usable Shopping Bags for $2.00 each at Mission City Hall, 6090 Woodson Rd.


You can purchase a bag at Chacko's at 6001 Johnson Drive and receive a ten-cent credit when you bring your bag in.
