The campaign originated to educate citizens about the opportunity and convenience of bag recycling in locations frequented by consumers. Keep Philadelphia Beautiful (KPB) is taking on this campaign on to unite, business, non-profits community and government organizations around the common goal of promoting bag recycling.
Most large supermarkets and pharmacies are called to set up recycling bins so everyone can return shopping bags, dry-cleaning bags, bread bags, wraps from paper towels, bathroom tissue, napkins, diapers and even the plastic bag that delivers the newspaper. Recycling these bags and wraps allows them to have a second life as new products including backyard fencing and decking, building and construction products, shopping carts, and of course, new bags.
