Smart Sort Bin

Every year, Winnipeg Harvest goes through over 1 million plastic bags. In response to that, Bag it Forward was created to give Manitobans more options on how they can reduce, reuse and recycle the plastic bags already in their homes. Drop off your gently used plastic bags at Winnipeg Harvest or your local food bank so they can be reused to create food kits.
