Love Notes

 This is very important to our children and the future of our planet.Although it is a very small step in a very big problem, it is time to start thinking of other people.  Scott T. 

 Keep our community clean, beautiful and safe by reducing the number of single-use plastic bags in circulation. We have the power to make a difference!  - Hanamori S.

 I am aware of the negative impact of plastic bags on the environment and my family has been limiting its use for years. We have a large collection of reusable bags that we use regularly. I would like our community to do more to reduce this common pollutant.  - Alison L.

P lastic bags are strangling our oceans, killing and maiming wildlife, and last forever. I want to clean up our world for my grandchildren.  - Sandra P.
