C.V. Promotes “A Day Without a Bag” Dec. 18
On December 18, the City of Chula Vista joins the environmental group Heal the Bay in an effort to encourage grocery stores and shoppers to use reusable bags instead of plastic bags. “A Day Without a Bag” is aimed at raising consumer awareness about personal choices through education.

Plastic bags are made from fossil fuels. Every year, Americans throw away more than 380 billion non-renewable bags. Washable reusable bags save resources and money and reduce litter and waste.

Grocery stores throughout the City will participate in “A Day Without a Bag” by distributing a limited number of recycled bags to shoppers. Giveaway times vary from store to store. Look for the list of participating stores by visiting the City’s Internet home page at

On December 18, between noon and 2 p.m., City Councilmember Steve Castaneda, an advocate of using recycled bags, will join City of Chula Vista Environmental Services staff for a bag giveaway at Henry’s Market, located at 690 Third Avenue. “The question to shoppers is no longer ‘Paper or plastic?’ said Castaneda. “The question is, ‘ Did you bring your own bag today?’ We are working to raise consumer awareness about personal choices that can have a positive impact on the community and the environment.”
