What a happy earth day it was here in Turks and Caicos! The largest, most frequented retail grocer in the country made a giant leap forward. Graceway IGA and Graceway Gourmet proclaimed yesterday a day without plastic, distributing only paper bags and words of encouragement for shoppers to start using their own reusable bags. The first 200 lucky shoppers were given, free of charge, a reusable shopping bag for all future visits. Please see the ECO-ZONE April 21 segment (around the 11:15min mark) brought to you by PTV to watch the good news for yourself. The TCI National Trust was also on hand to sell their wonderful selection of cotton bags.

Any of these cotton bags would make excellent grocery shopping bags. Styles range from $7 -$15 and go towards supporting their mission, ““To safeguard the natural, historical and cultural heritage of the Turks and Caicos Islands for present and future generations and for the enjoyment of all.”
A fantastic selection of locally made and crafted products available at the National Trust boutique.
