Food Lion is celebrating Earth Day by rolling out reusable shopping bags in all of its stores. The bags are made of a poly woven polypropylene, feature the Food Lion logo, and retail for $0.89 each.
"There are several reasons why we have made the decision to offer these bags to our customers," said Brian Stokes, Food Lion's project manager. "First and foremost, more and more people are becoming aware of the effect grocery bags can have on the environment. Reusable bags make sense. Second, we purchase millions of plastic grocery bags each year. By reducing the cost of buying bags, we can pass on those savings to our customers."
The company's Bloom and Bottom Dollar Food stores already offer similar reusable bags, Food Lion noted.
Salisbury, N.C.-based Food Lion LLC, a subsidiary of Brussels-based Delhaize Group, operates more than 1,300 supermarkets, either directly or through affiliated entities, under the names of Food Lion, Bloom, Bottom Dollar Food, Harveys, and Reid's.
