Reusable Bag Ordinance

Across the world, and especially in California, governments are encouraging the use of reusable shopping bags through the regulation of plastic bag bans, recycling mandates, taxes or fees. It is great that we are all transitioning into our reduce, reuse, and recycle communities; in fact, even I Bar Menlo Park will no longer be using any plastic bags for our Zaya Inc retail starting on June 6th, 2013.

At first, this may be an inconvenience, but here are San Mateo County's top five reasons to BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag!)
  1. You Save 10 -- Each paper bag will cost you a minimum of 10each!
  2. No more annoying wasteful pile of non-biodegradable plastic bags cluttering your kitchen.
  3. You get to sport a fashionable reusable bag that demonstrates your love for the environment; reusable shopping bags have become one of the newest fashion trends. Famous designers and popular brands are promoting their original shopping bags!
  4. You will become very popular with bird watchers as fewer bags mean fewer entangled birds (the birds will really like you too!).
  5. And last, but not least, you do your part in making our environment clean and sustainable!
Keep your eye out for those fashionable and reusable totes!
