We have some pretty fantastic news from Starfish Market and Starfish Gourmet & Wines today. In an effort to help preserve our gorgeous environment here on St. John, they will no longer be using plastic bags. Beginning this Friday, which happens to be Earth Day, both will officially switch to paper bags only … kudos Starfish!
Here’s what Nedra Ephraim, the store manager, had to say about the upcoming change:
“With this new environmental push, Starfish Market and Starfish Gourmet & Wines will be at the forefront in helping to maintain the beauty of our island and surrounding waters. We hope all of our customers will support us in this effort as we make the switch to paper bags only.”
For those of you interested in reusable bags, Starfish will be selling reusable bags at cost from April 19th through April 30th. And for customers who prefer paper bags with handles, they will be sold individually at the register for 25 cents apiece.
