Locals Taking Action

Today, Bag It Bellingham gave a presentation to the City Council on the bag ordinance proposal. People from the community even showed up! Tonight, we have urged citizens to come and share their voice that they would like to see our City Council pass a bag reduction ordinance. The word is starting to spread and many people in our community are in support of this. Make your voice heard by writing to our City Councilmembers now. They need to hear from you:;;;;;;

The Bellingham Herald ran 3 letters to the editor this past week. They were excellent. And if you feel inspired, send them a letter too:

Reusing Plastic Bags Not Good Enough - March 22
Salutes Those Who Carry Reusable Bags - March 26
Lists Reasons to Get Rid of Plastic Bags - March 26

A brilliant article, The Battle of the (Bag) Bans, was featured on March 24 in the online blog called Crosscut.

This week, the Bag Monster made its debut in downtown Bellingham, passing out invitations for the award winning documentary, Bag It for THIS Friday.
The photo album is posted on Facebook.

Western Today posted an article about the film TODAY! Be sure to get in on the action and come to our Bag It film screening and kick off to April as Plastic Pollution Reduction Month. A month worth of events are going on around town all month long. Be sure to check the RE Sources for Sustainable Communities website for details.

Share the Bag It Bellingham Movie Facebook event page with all your friends and even select guest to invite to help spread the word.

Thank you for taking action! The time is now! See you on Friday!
