Design your own reusable bag, I did.

Beginning April 12 and running through May 21, Kroger is inviting customers to visit their site. On their web site you can enter the 3rd Annual Kroger Reusable Shopping Bag Contest by designing their own reusable grocery bag.

Visitors to the site will vote on their favorite designs and from the top 10 designs, one grand prize winner will receive $1,000 and could potentially see their bag design sold in stores. Four finalists will receive $250 Kroger gift cards and five runners-up will receive $100 Kroger gift cards. Every Shopper’s Card holder who submits a design will receive a credit for a free reusable shopping bag. Additionally, Kroger’s partnered with Café Press so that after participants submit their design, they have the option of purchasing a reusable canvas bag with their design on it.

Kroger, one of America’s largest retailers is committed to being responsible stewards of the environment. Kroger and its family of stores sold an average of nearly 13,000 reusable shopping bags per day in 2009. They installed LED lighting in some of their stores, which use up to 76 percent less energy than fluorescent bulbs and In 2009, Krogers first LEED certified store – a nationally recognized standard for sustainable buildings – opened in Oregon. Thank you Kroger for doing your part to help the environment and supporting others in doing the same.

“Kroger provided me with a $25 gift card from its One-Stop Gift Card Shop so that I could have my reusable bag design printed, as well as a gift card for one of my readers so they could do the same.” Want to win a gift card? Design a Kroger bag and come back and leave me a comment linking to your design! One winner will be randomly drawn on May 21, 2010 and notified via email. So yes, you must leave your email!
