Cozumel Eliminate Plastic Grocery Bag Program

The island has a campaign to eliminate the use of shopping plastic bags and are encouraging all Cozumel Residents to use cloth bags to carry their groceries and other purchases.

This is going to be a tough habit to break, as the grocery stores all use plastics and the bags double for use in the homes for storage and trash.

We must set an example and either purchase the recycle bags available at the store or bring along our own cloth bags for our purchases.   Help us make a difference!
