50,000 Habitotes bags to be distributed on campus

If you missed the last distribution of reusable Habitotes bags in Fayetteville, you and 49,999 of your closest friends will have another opportunity to pick one up in a few months.

The company announced Wednesday that they have partnered with the University of Arkansas to distribute 50,000 of the totes at the Arkansas-Ole Miss football game on Oct. 23. According to the release, each bag is made from about five plastic water bottles.

A portion of the proceeds from ad sales on the totes will be donated to the University of Arkansas Green Groups Guild for scholarship programs. The Green Groups Guild students will be assisting with the distribution of the totes.

Last August, Habitotes announced a similar partnership with Fayetteville Public Schools. About 50,000 bags were distributed, resulting in $1,500 worth of scholarships for members of Fayetteville Public School’s Green Team.
