Action Team update

One of the recent Plastic Reduction Action Team projects was a letter to major grocery stores. We shared our concern about the single use plastic bottles which are privalent in their stores and end up in our environment as needless plastic waste.  We suggested that they prominately display re-usuable water bottles to purchase and install water bottle filling stations.  One members idea, "create clubs for children who can fill out a record sheet with filling station stamps and offer a small reward".

Plastic Reduction Action Team

Sustain Jefferson is continuing their efforts to reduce the use of plastics.  This newly formed team will work on various projects to help people throughout Jefferson County become more aware of the problem with plastics and to find alternatives in their daily lives.  The first project is to make and distribute small cloth produce bags to vendors at local Farmer's Markets.  This will help them eliminate their need for plastic bags for produce such as lettuce and other greens.  Others projects are on the list.
