Follett has set a goal to reduce our in-store shopping bag consumption by more than 50 percent this fiscal year. This fall alone, our network of more than 900 stores will prevent 3.5 million bags from entering our landfills and waterways. To achieve this
goal our campus stores will only supply bags for customers who request them. Though bags will always be available, we are confident our customers will support this initiative.
