Plastic Bag Recycling
Every year, Winnipeg Harvest goes through approximately 1 million plastic bags. In response to that, Bag it Forward was created to give Manitobans more options on how they can reduce, reuse and recycle the plastic bags already in their homes. This program encourages consumers all over Manitoba to drop off their gently-used plastic bags at Winnipeg Harvest or their local food bank so they can be reused to create food kits.
