Come on out to the Coop's General Meeting tonight (7pm @ Temple Beth Elohim, 8th and Garfield Aves.) to discuss ways that we can reduce (or eliminate!) the use of plastic produce (roll) bags at the Coop. Here's the agenda item:
Item #2: How to reduce use of plastic produce bags (40 minutes)
Discussion: "Plastic bags are useful and practical, but have many adverse environmental consequences. Shopping (t-shirt) bags have been eliminated at the Coop (and other places), but produce (roll) bags are a thornier issue. We would like to brainstorm with members to solicit ideas about (a) whether we can substantially reduce the number of produce bags we use at the Coop, and (b) how to do so without making the shopping experience more inconvenient or burdensome."
--submitted by the Environmental Committee, the General Coordinators, and concerned Coop members
We'd love to hear your suggestions!
