GEBE Statia manager, Fed Cuvalay, presented the new GEBE reusable bag to the Lt. Governor, Hyden Gittens, during the launch of the GEBE reusable bag campaign on Statia.

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.
