Help save the Anacostia and save yourself a nickel

Remember, starting January 1, 2010, District businesses selling food or alcohol must charge 5 cents for every disposable paper or plastic carry-out bag.

Five cents here and there adds up; save these nickels by bringing with your own bags.   The District government along with Safeway and CVS are giving away reusable shopping bags as part of the "Skip the Bag, Save the River" campaign.   To learn more about the new bag law, and DDOE's efforts to clean up the Anacostia River, visit the Skip the Bag, Save the River Web site.
