Breaking: Reading Terminal Gets With The Program, Finally Offers 'Reading Terminal Market'-Branded REUSABLE Shopping Bags For Sale To Its Customers

Reading Terminal Market and reusable bags[ In an effort to have more timely and more frequent posts, we’re going to try to do a few micro-posts each week, this being the first one… ]

Yes we did, in fact, call out the Terminal more than a year ago on the need to have Terminal-branded reusable bags for sale throughout its space.

And then again in January of this year, we gave them some more tough love about the same bags (or lack thereof).

Well, it would appear someone was listening.*
Now Available: Re-Usable Shopping Bags

Help reduce the use of disposable plastic bags by picking up an attractive Reading Terminal Market re-usable shopping bag, now available at many Market vendors while supplies last. Made from durable woven polypropylene, these bags are large enough to fit plenty of produce, meats, seafood, baked goods, flowers and more.
Well done, Reading Terminal. Very, Very boss.

Next up: charge people who use regular plastic bags (a la Ikea). For serious.

* Note: While we’d love to take credit for this innovation, in reality we’re not that naïve.
