Reusable Bag Challenge


Epstein’s Corporate Sustainability Implementation Committee, known internally as the ‘Green Team,’ recently handed out to all of our Chicago employees a reusable grocery/shopping bag to help promote and encourage sustainability in our everyday lives. These Epstein reusable bags are a great way to help divert potentially thousands of plastic bags from the waste stream.

Our Green Team also thought that a fun way to jumpstart this ecological lifestyle was to introduce the Green Team Reusable Bag Challenge! A competition that involves our employees taking selfies while using our bag while at a grocery store or picking up lunch and then posting it to either Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Each selfie posted using the hashtag #EpsteinGreenLiving will then be entered into a raffle.

Here's Epstein's Yvonne Wojnar showing how its done!

The Raffle grand prize winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to Avec, an award winning Paul Kahan restaurant. Avec is a Guaranteed Green restaurant supported by the Green Chicago Restaurant Coalition and a 2 star Certified Green Restaurant by the Green Restaurant Association.

This ‘Reusable Bag Challenge’ runs from now until Friday, December 11th and the winner will be selected on Monday, December 14th – so stay tuned to find out who our lucky winner is!
