Plastic Bag Reduction

The Green Committee invites you to join our “Drop That Bag Challenge” and reduce your use of plastic bags when you go to the store by bringing your own bag.

Look out for us at local events where we may be creating reusable bags like the one pictured above from old t-shirts or handing out new reusable bags for you to use while shopping.

We recently collected more than 500 lbs. of plastic bags (that’s a lot of plastic!!) at various locations throughout town through a Trex program that will recycle the bags into plastic lumber products. We will receive a bench to display at our Community Garden as part of the challenge.
