Island Women of Pleasure Island Distribute Custom Carolina Beach 2014 Reusable Bags
With the goal of discouraging the use of single-use plastic bags in Carolina and Kure Beach, NC, about 35 businesses are selling the reusable bags to tourists and residents. Sandpiper Marketing designed the bags with a map of the island on them, hoping it could also act as a tourist souvenir. According to businesses, the bags are selling out quickly.
The bags are being sold for $5 each and so far, about $11,000 has been raised which will go back into the care and protection of Pleasure Island. Great job islandwomen,org.
