Single Use Plastics Mitigation
We know that the solution to the plastic pollution crisis is in stopping the production and distribution of single-use plastics; coupled with mitigation strategies (like bottle bills, fixing recycling and transfer station systems, retooling how products sold are packaged and really striving to reduce waste in the first place before we move into what to do with the produced materials), we can make real progress on all fronts to drive needed change.
There are some exciting bills anticipated for next session in the NH General Court. YOUR actions supporting the state legislation combined with your efforts at the local level to test existing authority are key tactics that are helping us drive action forward. THANKS for all you’re doing to help drive solutions to plastic pollution and waste management!
Let’s help frontline workers, store managers and the public connect to the best available science on bagging to help shift focus to the REAL risks for COVID-19, which we know are close person-to-person contact, droplets and aerosols and NOT surfaces.
Out of an abundance of caution be sure to wash/disinfect EVERYTHING you touch that others may also touch. Yes, this includes reusable bags! But hey, it’s much easier to properly clean a reusable bag than it is a single-use bag ; who knows who has touched it before you grab it by the hand and bring it into your home!
Help out by printing and handing out this flyer to NEW HAMPSHIRE RETAIL OR GROCERY STORE EMPLOYEES each time you shop to help characterize their concerns: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLScg_C4D6l-JnToZib…/viewform
