National Return Shopping Carts to Supermarket

The month of February sure does have a lot going on. If you are like me you may be spending hours of shopping for the goodies to make on those special days. There is one holiday you should keep in mind while shopping as well.... "Return Shopping Carts "

The goal is to bring awareness to the fact that every year shopping carts go missing. Anthony Dinolfo was the first to start the day in 1969. A frustrated grocer he was tired of having shoppers not return the shopping carts. Each time someone walked off with a shopping cart it cost him $$. However, even more than the money loss was the fact that the shopping carts were stolen.

The issue of shopping carts not being returned became a matter of importance in Tuscon Arizona. The city council there created a shopping cart task force. Authorities in Maryland wanted to fine individuals who stole the shopping carts. The grocery chain ALDI created a pay as you go cart where shoppers have to insert a quarter to get a shopping cart. The system cut down on the need of cart roundups as well as carts did not disappear.

The point of all this is to remind you to return you shopping cart to the proper place
