Sam’s Club offers recyclable shopping totes
Sam’s Club will offer a reusable shopping tote in
all locations nationwide beginning in October, 2008.
Sam’s Club estimates it will be able to remove 1.9
million pounds of cardboard and package waste, or
more than 3,200 pounds per club, per year, by offering
the reusable shopping totes. This translates into
approximately 1,800 more recycled material bales
Sam’s Club will offer polypropylene reusable shopping
totes at a price of $2.74 for two; each bag is capable
of holding more than 50 pounds. Sam’s club estimates
the bags will last approximately five years.
The reusable tote bags display the water and leaf
icon and tag line “simple steps to saving green.”
This symbol also appears on eco-friendly products
and displays in Sam’s Club to designate items that
take steps to be more environmentally sustainable.
