Gloucester Single-Use-Bag & Polystyrene Ordinance

Seaside Sustainability has teamed up with Gloucester’s Clean City Commission, under the leadership of City Councilors Melissa Cox & Sean Nolan, and recently passed a ban in Gloucester on all single-use plastic bags and polystyrene (Styrofoam) containers (like coffee cups and takeout food containers) which will go into effect as of January 2019. This initiative, developed and managed by intern John Dello Russo, is imperative in maintaining the beauty and health of our coastal city’s land & marine spaces.  Considering the availability of biodegradable and reusable alternatives, as well as the economic benefits of the proposed ordinance, through this partnership we will work to educate the citizens of Gloucester in order to accomplish this goal collaboratively. #BringYourOwnBagGloucester.  Like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/BYOBagGloucester/
