[ARCHIVED] Reusable bag and milk crate drive

“By including the local community in our sustainability efforts, we hope to increase awareness of simple and effective environmental practices everybody can participate in. We want to encourage healthy lifestyle changes for individuals and for the community as a whole,” said Molly Watson, brand manager for Shamrock Farms.

Shamrock Farms will be co-hosting a booth with Bashas’ at the Earth Day festival on April 19 at City Hall Lawn from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. From earth-friendly kids activities to organic food sampling, there’s something for everyone. It is an opportunity for all ages to learn and engage in making a change for the Earth. Even Roxie, Shamrock Farm’s spokescow, will be there to add to the fun.

Shamrock Farms and Bashas’ will be conducting similar activities at the NAU/KJACK Earth Day Celebration taking place on the NAU School of Communication lawn at First Amendment Plaza.

In addition to the booth activities, attendees are encouraged to trade in their Shamrock Farms milk crates or bring five plastic bags to trade in for a reusable grocery tote (while supplies last). More than 1 million pounds of plastic is created each year to replace lost and stolen milk crates. This milk crate drive will help reduce the amount of plastic in our world, making the earth a greener place. Everyone is encouraged to come join in the fun and make a difference too!
