Eugene Plastic Bag Ban Approaches

EUGENE, Ore. — The kickoff of Eugene’s plastic bag ban is less than one month away, and the city is using these last few weeks to get the word out, especially to retailers.

The city’s hosting two info sessions to walk retailers through the new law and to answer any questions.

“I’ve been talking to a lot of people mostly one on one just about what the new law entails, because a lot of people have really specific questions depending on the business. So it’s been really helpful to hear people’s concerns because there’s things that we haven’t thought of either,” said Stephanie Scafa, Eugene No-Waste Analyst.

The sessions are scheduled for April 11. There is one at noon and another at 5:30 p.m. Click here for more information.

    I understand the issue on plastic bags but I also see people buying a paper bag which effects our forest. Been their before. We will see all the gooneys out on the streets with signs to protect the forest and the birds. I see the hippies using the cloth bags and dying of ecoli or spreading ecoli through out the stores and check outs. You libbers need to back off and come up with a better idea.
