Go Green with Crest’s Reusable Bag Giveaway

Crest Cleaners is giving away free reusable shopping bags at all four of our Maryland locations!

We’re giving away these bags to help transition those affected by new legislature in Maryland. Montgomery County’s “Carryout Bag Law,” effective since January 1, 2012, weighs a 5-cent charge on all carryout plastic and paper bags from retail establishments. This ban includes bags from all grocery, convenience, liquor, hardware, department, and drug stores. Other cities in the U.S. are charging a disposable bag fee, including several cities in Texas, California, and most notably, Washington DC.

Charging 5 cents per bag is meant to discourage shoppers from using plastic and paper bags and encourage the use of reusable shopping bags. Plastic and paper bags are bad for the environment and most often end up in landfills. Montgomery County is definitely invested in the future of the planet, however, we know the inconvenience this may put on many of our customers. We’d like to both support protecting the environment and make your lives easier!

Come out to Crest Cleaners’ Gaithersburg, Germantown, Potomac, or Rockville location and receive your free Crest reusable bag (limit one per customer, no purchase required). Supplies are limited, so hurry in to your closest Maryland Crest Cleaners location today!

And don’t forget, this weekend is Earth Day! Crest Cleaners will be giving away free wildflower seeds to the first 200 visitors to all Crest Cleaners locations, just like we did last year. And if gardening isn’t your thing, our GreenEarth cleaning ensures that your dry cleaning is always eco-friendly.
