Plastic Shopping Bags -- Vote on Tuesday!

Are you concerned about the environmental impact that plastic single-use shopping bags have on our planet? Our committee is co-sponsoring a proposal which is on the agenda for the May 27 General Meeting, and we'd love it if you could come.

Tuesday, May 27, 7:00 p.m.
274 Garfield Place at 8th Ave. (Garfield Temple social hall)

Item #3: Eliminate Plastic Shopping Bags
(40 minutes)
Proposal: Eliminate the provision of plastic shopping (tshirt) bags at the Coop and not provide substitutes with similar attributes of limited reusability and adverse environmental consequences, such as paper bags
—submitted by the Environmental Committee, the General Coordinators, and concerned members
