Engage your organization or favorite business and ask them to add their name in support.

Call or email your City Councilors to let them know you support our proposal and would like them to enact legislation.

Host a screening of the film Bag it in your school, organization, or with friends. For a copy, contact Sally Munger at 728-0711 or via email!

Host a reusable bag collection event and donate bags to our local community service organizations such as CHUM.

Thank those organizations that have added their name in support and join you in a shared love of place.

Don't forget to bring a reusable bag to the store and model how to act and think differently!
