Island Women of Pleasure Island Distribute Custom Carolina Beach 2014 Reusable Bags

July 23, 2014 by adminify
The Island Women of Pleasure Island have distributed nearly 4000 reusable bags in Carolina Beach and Kure Beach.  They are jumping on board with the mission to reduce single-use plastic bags polluting the ocean, according to Juliet Wright. 

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.
