Resident Transition Workshops:
These workshops included a reusable bag and straw giveaway and encouraged folks to shop with reusable bags!
The workshops were designed to provide residents with tools and resources that will help support a smooth community-wide transition to the new single-use plastic regulations that take effect January 1, 2020.
Over 70 residents joined us at a free workshop in December!
There were two opportunities to attend:
- Sunday, December 8, 2019, from 1 to 2 p.m. at 1401 Sam Rittenberg Blvd (Event Link), -or-
- Wednesday, December 11, 2019 from 6 to 7 p.m. at 60 America Street (Event Link)
Thank you to everyone who provided input on what reusable bags work for you! We have met with many folks in the community to gather opinions on the type and size of bags to purchase, and there was strong interest to purchase a variety of types, including insulated bags, cotton bags, and foldaway bags, and stainless steel straws with cleaners! Thank you for your input!
