Free Recycled Bag from ECO Eureka

The holidays are here and ECO Eureka has a gift for you!

Make holiday shopping both heartfelt and easy with a FREE environmentally friendly reusable shopping bag!

These handy bags are durable, made from recycled material and informative with ways to take care of our beautiful city. All bags are designed with a complete and colorful street map that lets residents know when street cleanings are scheduled so that cars can be temporarily moved in order for all trash to be picked up! Keeping the streets extra clean prevents pollutants from washing into waterways, especially during the rainy season. Pollutants that end up in the Humboldt Bay harm wildlife and cover our precious beaches with garbage. Remember, there is a plastic bag ban in Humboldt! You can help save Humboldt’s natural beauty by sporting this reusable bag.

 

Come pick up a free reusable shopping bag at the Adorni Center located on 1011 Waterfront Drive in Eureka!
