Ashland Will Study Plastic Bag Ban

By Jim McCoy Wed 17th July NewsAshlandplastic bag ban
The Ashland City Council has voted unanimously to direct the city's Conservation Council to study the idea of a ban on plastic bags and then return a recommendation to the council. According to a report in the Ashland Daily Tidings, the vote occurred Tuesday night. Four stores have already ceased the use of plastic bags: Albertson's, Mark of Choice, the Ashland Food Co-op and Shop 'n' Kart no longer use them. Earlier this week, the group "Environment Oregon" launched a campaign to ban plastic bag use by retailers in Ashland. After a bill failed to gain traction in the Oregon legislature, campaigns by conservation groups at a community-by-community level have enjoyed a degree of success.
