Go Green

Greening brown bags

The city of Mountain View has partnered with Green Mountain View and local retailers to remind customers to bring reusable bags when shopping.

Launched last week, the “Bring Your Own Bag” campaign is a public-outreach and -awareness program that uses parking-lot signs, posters and other materials at participating stores to encourage shoppers to think green before embarking on a spree to spend the green.

The campaign’s goal is to reduce the number of single-use plastic and paper bags. A high-quality reusable bag can potentially replace more than 600 single-use plastic bags over its lifetime, significantly reducing refuse.
