BYOB Initiative

We don’t do plastic – BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag) Program

Collectively the world uses 500 billion (yes, billion) plastic bags per year. Less than 3% are recycled, and each one can take up to 1,000 years to decompose. If you really want to make a difference, lose the plastic and sling a canvas bag over your shoulder.

Greeks Going Green is teaming up with the 34th Street Publix, encouraging Greeks to compete in the “We don’t do plastic – BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag)” Program.

When Greeks shop at the 34th Street Publix and bring along their own canvas, grocery bag, they can sign in at the register and receive a point towards their chapter’s participation in the program. At the end of the semester, the house with the most points will be recognized and these points will be added to their chapter’s cumulative score in the Greeks Going Green Campaign Competition.
