Panel Discussion: Taking Action on Plastic Bag Use

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018 7:00 pm–8:30 pm
South Shore Natural Science Center

Part of our Free WaterWatch Lecture Series.
Janis Owens (Duxbury), Jeanne Ryer (Marshfield) and Ken Stone (Plymouth)

This panel of community advocates will describe their efforts on the South Shore to build support for banning the use of plastic bags. Bans have been passed in Plymouth (October, 2016) and Duxbury (March, 2017) and efforts are underway to put it before Marshfield Town Meeting in 2018. Also featured will be excerpts from “Bag It: The Movie”, the highly praised documentary about an “everyman” whose pledge to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store completely changed his life.
