Going green now includes new rules for recycling all those plastic bags. NBC’s (and Croton-on-Hudson’s) Rob Kaplan reports in the following video titled, “It’s in the Bag,” on April 24, 2008.
Locally, residents of Croton-on-Hudson can buy reusable shopping bags at ShopRite (South Riverside Avenue) and the A&P Supermarket (Albany Post Road North). As an alternative—and as part of their fundraising efforts—the Croton Free Library sells canvas tote bags while the Croton Harmon High School P.T.A. announced availably of “Croton Goes Green” shopping bags in December/January 2008 issue of CHHS News.
