Bags That Give Back: Black River Action Team Selected to Benefit in Ludlow Shaw's Reusable Bag Program Designed to Give Back in Local Communities

posted Tuesday, July 19, 2022

(Ludlow, VT) Reduce single-use plastic in the environment and give back to a worthy cause in the local community, all while running routine weekly errands at the Ludlow Shaw's. The all-volunteer Black River Action Team has been selected by local Shaw's store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Reusable Bag Program for the month of August!

The Shaw's GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Reusable Bag Program is an easy way for shoppers to give back to the local community and the environment as part of the regular shopping routine. Every $3.00 reusable GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Bag sends a $1 donation to a non-profit local to the Shaw's in which it was purchased.

As part of this ongoing program, every month at every Shaw's location a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of the reusable GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Bag. BRAT was selected as the August beneficiary by local store leadership at the store located at 213 Main St, Ludlow VT. The Black River Action Team will receive a $1 donation for every $3.00 reusable GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Bag purchased at this location in August.

"As focused as BRAT is on healthy, trash-free waterways, it's more important than ever to help keep plastic out of the environment," says Kelly Stettner, Founder and Director of the Black River Action Team. "Non-profits at the local level, like BRAT, are in need of community support. This program offers the perfect solution to multiple issues of the world today. We hope you'll support us in August by purchasing one - or two! - GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS bags at the Ludlow Shaw's!"

The Black River Action Team is a non-profit based in Windsor County, VT. Founded in 2000, BRAT volunteers collect water quality data, perform annual river cleanups, teach about aquatic ecosystems, and plant native streambanks and shorelines to protect water quality as well as property values.
