Budget Marine Introduces Eco-Friendly, Reusable Shopping Bags

With the distribution of these attractive, eco-friendly, re-usable shopping bags in its locations Caribbean wide, Budget Marine say they have taken a small, but important step towards protecting the marine environment.

Antigua’s bold lead in banning the importation and use of all plastic bags, except for those used for garbage collection and disposal, provided the impetus for designing and distributing these bags, not only in Antigua, but also to Budget Marine’s 13 Caribbean stores including Aruba, which recently followed Antigua’s lead in banning one-time use plastic bags.

The powerful sailing image displayed on both sides of the new bags was shot by photographer Jean Jarreau, and shows the super maxi Team Comanche in all its racing splendor.
