‘Where’s Your Bag?’ Prize Patrol to Be On the Lookout

Customers 'caught' using reusable bags will win goodies and gift certificates

During the next few months, the city of Santa Barbara’s “Where’s Your Bag?” voluntary single-use bag reduction program and participating stores will conduct random “prize patrols.”

During the week of Nov. 16, the program will surprise customers in participating stores by “catching” them in the act of bringing reusable bags. Shoppers will be caught on video by City TV and given bags of goodies from the “Where’s Your Bag?” partners. Prizes include a $75 gift certificate to the store, gift certificates from “Where’s Your Bag?” partners as well as a “Where’s Your Bag?” reusable bag and other goodies.

Participating stores include Albertsons, Foodland, Lazy Acres, Ralphs, Santa Cruz Markets, Scolari’s, Tri-County Produce and Vons.

The “Where’s Your Bag?” program, which kicked off Aug. 28, is a collaboration of the city’s Environmental Services Division, Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, Choose to Reuse, Tri-County Produce and the California Grocers Association.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
