Giveaway at Cinema Arts Theatres on November 14

The Virginia Green Baggers will be in Fairfax this evening, giving away bags at Cinema Arts Theatres. Stick around after the giveaway for a screening of Hot Water, a "haunting preview of the risks to our water and communities" should Virginia's ban on uranium mining be lifted. The giveaway will begin in the theater lobby around 6:00 p.m. and the movie starts at 7:00 p.m. Cinema Arts is in the Fair City Mall, 9650 Main Street, Fairfax, VA. Hope to see you there!

Giveaway in McLean, August 24

Notwithstanding the lack of activity on our blog the past 18 months, the Virginia Green Baggers have been extremely busy. A few more folks have joined our ranks, and they are cranking out dozens of bags every month. They're amazing!

Our fearless leader, Helene, has also been consistently scheduling giveaways every month of the spring, summer, and fall. Last month we were in Springfield; the month before, Oakton; the month before, Reston. At this point, we've given out more than 600 bags!

We are trying to hit all corners of Fairfax County because, in addition to giving away bags, we're hoping to gather enough signatures to convince the Board of Supervisors to eliminate single-use plastic bags from retail stores in the county. Come find us at our next giveaway if you haven't already signed the petition.

And speaking of our next giveaway, we'll be at the McLean farmers market on Saturday, August 24. Hope to see you there!
