Customer Service Desk: Reusable Bags

Let’s Do Good Together

We all play a part in helping take care of the earth. You might not realize it, but every time you pick up a reusable bag, you’re joining us in showing this beautiful world a little love.

We donate ten cents from every purchase of Publix reusable bags—up to $250,000 annually—to support sustainability projects that help our community. Like planting trees that help clean our waterways, for example.

Since 2016, Publix has donated to the Arbor Day Foundation. As of January 2023, they’ve used those donations to plant one million trees across more than 1,500 acres in Florida’s Little Orange Creek Preserve, Withlacoochee State Forest, Econfina Creek, and the Sunnyhill Restoration and Emeralda Marsh Conservation areas. These trees are helping restore and protect area watersheds and critical wildlife habitat. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, these trees are estimated to intercept more than 87 million gallons of stormwater runoff and will help absorb and store more than one million metric tons of carbon dioxide over the next 40 years.* And here’s the thing: you helped make that happen. Every time you buy the bags that give back, you’re making the earth smile a little brighter.

Pick up one of our Publix reusable bags next time you stop by, and let’s do good together.
