On Wednesday July 23rd, Go Green Northbrook made its inaugural appearance at the Northbrook Farmers Market on their “Art Of Recycling” day. Go Green Northbrook members greeted visitors, shared information about our initiatives and encouraged visitors to sign up for our e-newsletter.
Additionally, Go Green Northbrook sold reusable nylon produce bags. Reusable produce bags are the next step to avoiding use of plastic bags throughout a grocery shopping trip. Many of us think to bring reusable bags to collect our purchases at checkout, but we can also bring produce bags for bagging your fruits and vegetables. We’ve found wonderful sets (4–5 bags) locally at both Whole Foods and Crate and Barrel. The Farmers Market is no different than a trip to the grocery store in terms of bags — bring your reusables!
It was a delightful day and wonderful to meet so many of you. Please join us again at the Market on Wednesday, September 24th.
