Sustainable Ringwood Green Team - Decorate a Reusable Bag!
The Green Team will be onsite to promote their "Bring Your Own Bag Campaign" with bags and fabric markers so you can decorate your own reusable bag. When the masterpiece is done, you can take your bag home and use it for grocery or other purchases. One reusable bag can save 288 plastic bags a year per person, so stop by and get yours!
