Earn rewards for using paper bags
Pick up a Bagboard paper bag from a participating retailer and you can earn points every time you use it to shop. Points can then be used to get discounts on planet-friendly brands. Bagboard also donates a portion of advertising revenue to cleaning up plastic waste with the Plastic Bank.
