Free Kroger Reusable Bag

In the lead-up to Earth Day, Kroger Co. here is inviting customers to participate in its annual “Design a Reusable Shopping Bag” online contest.

Beginning April 12 and running through May 21, customers can go online at The Design a Reusable Shopping Bag Contest with Kroger to submit their designs for Kroger’s reusable grocery bags.

The winning designer will receive a $1,000 gift card and a chance to see the bag design sold in Kroger stores. In addition, four finalists will be awarded a $250 Kroger gift card and five runners-up will receive a $100 Kroger gift card.

During the contest, anyone who designs a bag and has a valid shopper card will receive an electronic coupon for a free reusable bag (99-cent value) loaded directly to their card, where applicable. Kroger has also partnered with Cafe Press so participating designers can purchase a reusable bag with their own design on it.

In 2009, Kroger and its subsidiary chains sold an average of nearly 13,000 reusable shopping bags per day. Every reusable bag has the potential to save 1,000 plastic bags over its lifetime.
