Hold the plastic bag!
During this pandemic season, we’ve seen an uptick in the amount of plastic waste — from groceries disallowing reusable shopping bags to copious take-out from restaurants.
And while things are changing as our county opens up and loosens restrictions, we must remain vigilant in doing our part to reduce plastic waste!
Eric Wolff (see photo) did his part by packing his groceries directly in his cart and wheeling it out to the parking lot where he transferred his groceries to reusable bags in the back of his car. We’ve heard the same from Los Altos residents Maureen Griffith and Linda Gass. They are doing their part to manage their plastic waste even in the worst of the pandemic!
This month is Plastic Free July, a global movement started in Australia in 2011 to help everyday citizens be part of the solution to plastic pollution – for cleaner oceans and more beautiful communities!
Won’t you take a first step and join the Plastic Free July challenge by choosing to refuse single-use plastics for the month of July?
