 The City of Halifax is considering a feasibility study on banning free
plastic bags, after the manner of Montreal, Amsterdam, India and
California. Ina new model, bags might come with a mandatory fee or be
reusable only as they are at Superstore on Quinpool road.

Help me show the city that there is support for this idea. Halifax is a
forward-thinking environmental city, but out wind-blown plastic waste right
now goes straight to the Sargasso Sea which contains critical sea turtle
habitat. I have heard feedback that places in the UK who have banned free
plastic bags enjoy a more aesthetic and cleanlier public sphere.

Please sign and share widely!


And for my part, I shall not wholly fail of my task, said Gandalf, if
anything passes through this night that can still grow fair or bear fruit
and flower again in days to come. For I also am a steward, did you not know?
