Will take less than 6 months of the school talking to the bookstore to get them to agree on eliminating bags at the store.
To completely eliminate the use of plastic bags at the UIC Bookstore. Similar to how chain stores in the city stopped using plastic bags. I work at the bookstore and many of our customers don’t want a bag anyway. All online orders don’t get plastic bags or boxes anymore we use reusable bags, like the ones you get at events or pay $1-2 for at the store. Furthermore, we will have a reusable bag drive on campus where like 200 students get a UIC reusable bag and tell them about the elimination of plastic bags in the Bookstore. Also we will send a massive email and post a sign on the bookstore’s main entrance to inform them about the change .
- To buy the reusable bags will cost like around .59 cents per bag, therefore 200 bags will cost like $118 (Cheaptote.com).
- Plus like $50 or less for a sign to put outside the UIC Bookstore (Vistaprint.com).
