The United Family said in the United States nearly 100 billion plastic bags are used each year; with the average person using between 350 and 500. That according to ReuseThisBag.com.

At United Supermarkets, guests are incentivized to replace their plastic bags with reusable bags for a small discount of 5 cents per reusable bag at checkout.

Guests can even use their own reusable bags when getting curbside groceries through StreetSide said the United Family.

Amarillo College has announced that it will replace its campus-wide mask mandate with an masks-optional policy beginning on Monday, April 26.

Masks, however, must be worn at the College’s Spring Commencement on May 14 at Hodgetown Stadium, which mandates that all who enter wear face coverings
