Press release and present from the City of Eureka’s Parks and Recreation Department:

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! Bags are limited to one per Eureka household, and can be picked up between 6 a.m. - 9 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. weekends. Take the pledge to stay green today!  This opportunity to make the community greener is brought to you on behalf of the City of Eureka and Recology. Bags available beginning December 1st and while supplies last.  For more information please call (707) 441-4248.
