Safeway Scraps Green Bag Rebate



    Meet a Former Radio City Rockette Who Got Her Life Back

    Soon, going green at the grocery store might not save you any green.

    More and more grocery stores, including Safeway, are discontinuing rebates for customers who bring in their own reusable bags.

    Officials said they're stopping the rebate because it wasn't persuading customers to bring in their own bags.

    Other grocery stores around the country, like Kroger, are ditching the rebate as well.

    They're instead focusing on promotions and visible reminders for people to bring in their reusable bags.
