To encourage the use of reusable checkout bags for the benefit of our town's environment and citizens.
Plastic bags pose a threat to the Long Island Sound, wildlife, natural areas, and health of the Guilford community. It is our goal to inspire citizens to replace single-use plastic checkout bags with reusable bags to decrease our town's plastic waste.
Step one: Increase the use and distribution of reusable bags.
Step two: Pass an ordinance prohibiting single-use plastic checkout bags.
Step three: Place a small fee on paper bags in order to create an incentive to bring reusable bags.
