Take care of your bags so they take care of you,
Keep a separate bag for meats, vegetables, dairy and non-food items. Use a different Foodland designed bag for each and make sure to let your cashier know which bag is for what items. Keep in mind that plastic bags used to package fruit and vegetables, as well as bags to wrap frozen food and meats, will still be allowed under this new law. So use them when purchasing these items so they don't leak. Wash your reusable bags so spills don’t lead to bacteria growth. Simply wipe down with hot soapy water or a disinfectant wipe and let air dry. Canvas and cloth bags can be machine washed. Foodland is here to support you in many ways during this transition, so please let us know if you would like to buy a bag, if you forgot your bag in your car, or if you have any questions. We’re here to help! It looks like this bag ban isn’t a big deal after all. So let’s get in the routine together and go reusable!
