Rosewood Market Natural Food- store and Deli will give away 500, limited edition, re- usable tote bags beginning Friday, February 29.

The campaign will raise awareness on the environmental impact of plastic bag over use and promote alternatives. Rosewood Market will donate 10 cents to Harvest Hope Food Bank on behalf of every customer who doesn't use a plastic bag.

"We have wanted to take action for quite some time," said Basil Garzia, Rosewood Market owner. "We have found a great way to promote this important matter."

The Campaign will conclude April 19 during Rosewood Market's planned Earth Day celebration. The grand total of money raised for Harvest Hope Food Bank and the number of bags saved will be announced.
