Reusable Bag Catastrophe

The QFC grocery store in Port Hadlock, Washington, is trying to encourage green living, but this sign is polluting the environment with an apostrophe catastrophe.

Besides the errant apostrophe in its, this sign should also have a period at the end of the sentence. And reusable bag is not a proper noun, so what's with the capitalization?

Thanks to Cathy for sending this one in.

This is a very Irish thing. Someone has stolen all the possessive apostrophes from business signs and inserted them into the "it is" contraction wherever it is to be found.
