No, not that kind.

The Castro Valley Sanitary District is offering free reusable tote bags in support of the countywide Bring Your Own Bag campaign.

The bags are made of 80 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, and officials estimate the average person will save 250 plastic bags a year when bringing their own reusable bag to go shopping.

BYOB give-away schedule (for residents of the Castro Valley Sanitary District only):

Rite Aid Pharmacy
9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11
3848 Castro Valley Blvd.

Longs Drug Store
12:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25
3667 Castro Valley Blvd.

Each event will last about three hours and supplies are limited.
