Gate City celebrates 1 millionth “blue bag” with contest

Gate City Bank is celebrating the powerful and positive impact of their reusable blue bags. With over one million reusable blue bags donated since 2007, they are committed to creating cleaner, greener communities, and believe that it is their responsibility to make a difference in the communities they serve. Over the past 10 years, they have helped save 700 million plastic bags from entering our environment.

People are invited to enter a contest in which they could win the top prize of $1,000. It involves taking and submitting to Gate City Bank a photograph of how they use their “blue bag.” Details of the contest can be found at or their Facebook page.

The contest ends Dec. 14.
