Jewel-Osco Sells 1 Million Reusable Shopping Bags

Melrose Park, Ill. Jewel-Osco announced that it has surpassed the sale of 1 million green reusable shopping bags.

"We are seeing more and more people buying and using recyclable shopping bags," said Keith Nielsen, president of Jewel-Osco. "This is likely due to the heightened awareness about the environment and the impact of plastic bags in landfills."

Jewel-Osco began selling its green reusable shopping bags last August in all of its stores.

Since then, the company has introduced a line of insulated blue bags designed to keep cold and hot products temperature-controlled, as well as a few specialty printed reusable bags.
