Correction on the Hannaford donations to ACTT


In my post on Sunday, I said the following:
“In acknowledgment of the inevitable complete ban of such bags on MDI, the Bar Harbor Hannaford has announced that for each $1 reusable bag purchased during the month of December, it will contribute $1 to the MDI sustainability group ‘A Climate to Thrive.'”
It turns out that is not precisely the case. Hannaford will indeed be doing this, bur not for my stated reason. I was unaware that Hannaford apparently has a policy of doing this periodically (every month?) to benefit a local non-profit. This particular month arose out of a conversation with ACTT, not out of any acknowledgment of the larger movement of bag bans. I regret any misunderstanding I may have created.
