The unspoiled queen just got a little greener. GEBE Saba manager, Dexter Johnson, presented the Lt. Governor of Saba, Jonathan Johnson, during the launch of the GEBE reusable bag campaign on Saba.
GEBE will be distributing a total of 10,000 of these bags on St. Maarten, Saba and Statia to its customers in January 2009. Used twice a week for a period of two years, each GEBE reusable shopping bag can replace up to 1664 plastic bags in its lifetime. The 10,000 bags that GEBE will be distributing could therefore mean a total plastic bag reduction on these islands of 16 million bags. The bag is for the conscious shopper who like GEBE takes the environment into account.
