You probably already knew this, but in case not. As of tomorrow, Wednesday, July 1, 2015, you no longer will be able to get the old-style plastic bags at checkout at most grocery stores on Oahu.
If you don't already have your own bags to bring with you (so you can avoid paying the $.10 for the paper bag which the stores will provide), we are here to help you out. You can save yourself the embarrassment of carrying out all your stuff in your arms or in an old box like when you go to Costco, by obtaining one of our firm's reusable eco-friendly bags.
The photos photos above and below show you what they look like.
These are not your typical cheapo reusable bags, but are heavy duty, cloth-like bags that in our experience can hold up to two paper bags' worth of groceries. Really fine. We even use them to haul our heavy notebooks and the like to and from court. A low-rent briefcase maybe, but definitely utilitarian.
All you need to do is email us with (1) your name, (2) a mailing address, and (3) with "bag" somewhere in the subject line. We will place said bag in the U.S. Postal Service for you. We won't put you on a mailing list, or send you junk mail. We won't even retain your information permanently. We're just happy you can use them.
Note: our firm's spam filters can be pretty aggressive. If you don't get an email confirmation in a couple days, send your request again.
And in case it's not clear - we're glad to send anyone a bag. You don't have to be in Honolulu. Laws like this tend to spread, so even if your jurisdiction currently is ok with plastic, chances are in the future it may not be.
We don't have an unlimited supply, so this deal will end on Friday, July 10, 2015.
