Reusable Bag Fundraiser

June 12, 2019

Jersey City is implementing a plastic bag ban that goes into effect on June 28th, 2019. This is a huge step for the environment, but will undoubtedly pose a challenge to Jersey City shoppers! To help ease everyone during this transitional period, Farms in the Heights plans to give out free reusable bags to anyone in need at the Riverview Farmers Market!

We’re holding a fundraiser now to help fund this project now. Support us by donating here!

If donating money is not your thing, there are other ways to help! Do you have a collection of bags collecting dust somewhere? A “bag of bags” perhaps? It’s not unheard of for totes to accumulate over time, and if you have some that aren’t in use, but they’re clean and have life left to them, we would love to take them and circulate them to those in need at the market! Just bring them to the information table on Sundays, 10-3.
