Trade Us A Plastic Bag For An ALBB Tote Bag At Back To School Block Party


This Saturday is the 5th Annual Back To School Block Party and School Supply Drive from I Am Beacon, in partnership with Key Food at the South Avenue Park, just up the hill from the basketball courts and Beacon Dental. There will be games, food, music, and basketball!

A Little Beacon Blog will also be there, and wants to trade you one of our tote bags for a plastic bag! While supplies last (we have 19!), you can have a free tote bag when you bring one plastic bag. One tote bag per person. We’ll collect the plastic bags and stuff them into the plastic bag collection bin at Key Food.

Plastic bags don’t go into home recycling cans because they float around the recycling center and get into the machines, causing major problems. Start carrying a collection of totes, and skip the plastic bag - from anywhere! It’s a tricky habit to start when you’re in a restaurant or a store, and pulling out a tote bag isn’t commonplace. Or if you’re in Walmart with those rotating wheels of plastic bags. But give it a try!

Free tote bags for the first 19 plastic bag trades, and then we’ll have them on sale for $10 (normally $18 on this website).

See you soon!

Totes! We Got Tote Bags! First Run Of A Little Beacon Blog Bags


Totes! We got tote bags!

We’ve had them for about a year, but the boss was too shy to put them out there! Utter silliness. You need more totes in your life! And this is a great way to support local journalism. A Little Beacon Blog’s tote bags were screen-printed in Newburgh at Mixture Inc .

You can buy them online right here, and you can opt to pick up in the store! Well, in our office, LOL. If you see the lights on, come in. Or you can do shipping.

Sometimes if we are here on the weekend, you may see a tote bag hanging on the door to let you know that someone is here. We aren’t always here on the weekends. But sometimes we are, but are writing quietly.

Thank you for your support!
