In an effort to empower AT&T customers with sustainable choices, increase efficiency and minimize impact on the environment, AT&T is teaming up with The Nature Conservancy to encourage AT&T customers to skip the bag when purchasing items from its retail stores. With this program, which runs now through January 31, 2014, AT&T will donate 10 cents to the Nature Conservancy for each check out bag its customers choose to forego.
