Bag it, Duluth!

We are a diverse group of Duluth citizens, businesses and organizations that have come together to offer a proposal for our City, to Duluth City Council, that would encourage reusable carry-out bags and environmentally preferable to-go containers.

Modeled after legislation from more than 160 cities across the nation, and tailored for Duluth, our proposal would help shift consumer behavior and put our values into practice. And, it would also help level the playing field for business and allow them to recover costs.


What we've Learned



What we Believe


The City of Duluth is recognized as a national leader for its support and promotion of active living and the outdoor environment. Our community has a demonstrated “love of place” for the natural beauty we share. Our City has made sustainability a governing principle in its comprehensive plan and has passed a variety of resolutions supporting environmental stewardship.Yet, as creatures of habit, good intention doesn't always translate into changed behavior.


This effort helps connect the different values we individually embrace, linking us as a community:


  • as an outdoor City, we want to show case and keep our landscapes and water clean
  • we are an award winning City, one that leads the state and country
  • we are a City and community that cares about our children and future generations
  • we are prudent and use our financial and natural resources wisely
  • we work to minimize and alleviate unnecessary suffering to wildlife
  • we are a City that shares an upspoken feeling about the sacred beauty and connection we feel to this place we call home


Fortunately, many businesses and citizens already practice many of the behaviors the legislation aims to encourage.
