After hearing that the Interfaith Food Pantry of Morris County wants to go green, Back2Tap decided to help out. We donated reusable stainless steel water bottles and reusable cotton shopping bags.
According to Rosemary Gilmartin, Executive Director of the local pantry, “We go through thousands of paper and plastic bags every year and realize that using reusable bags is a better option from both a cost and environmental perspective. We have over 5,000 families coming to the pantry and we would like to be able to offer each family three bags”.
Rosemary first got started with her reusable bag program by working with Susie Schub, founder and president of Jumpstart, a unique charitable giving program for schools and corporations, that recently held a canvas bag design contest.
Being green not only helps the environment but also allows places like the food pantry to better use their funds for food instead disposable plastic.
