Plastic Bag Ban in Eugene’s Future?

EUGENE, Ore. — Monday night, the Corvallis City Council voted to ban plastic bags.

That makes it the second city in the state to do so.

But what about Eugene?

A dozen local retailers and organizations already threw their support behind a potential bag ban.

But BRING Recycling’s Executive Director Julie Daniel says it could take time to happen here.

“I think that it’s pretty clear that plastic disposable grocery bags have greater impact on society than individual choice, but you gonna hear that argument play out, and sometimes it takes time to work through that,” Daniel said.

Later this month, the city will look at survey data from local consumers and retailers regarding a plastic bag ban.
