With plastic pollution continuing to be a growing global issue the Dauphin Co-op is committed to making a difference.

For the Co-op reducing plastic waste is a priority which is why they announced yesterday that beginning Tuesday, February 1 the Dauphin Co-op Food Store will eliminate single-use plastic bags in order to help to preserve the environment for future generations, one bag at a time.

Shoppers are being reminded to bring their reusable bags each time they visit but they do have a variety of reusable bags available for purchase including new, value-priced reusable bags which are 3 for $1 with other sustainable options including paper bags and totes available.
