County Launches Second Phase of Reusable Bag Campaign
County Executive Ike Leggett joined by County Councilmember Craig Rice, Environmental Protection Director Lisa Feldt, Executive Director Trash Free Maryland Julie Lawson and dozens of volunteers launched the second phase of the "Bring Your Bag" campaign on June 18. The event included a stream clean-up and free bag giveaway at three grocery stores.
The outreach campaign will focus on increased awareness and education on the impacts of disposable bags on the environment, supporting retailers and the distribution of free bags to residents throughout the County.
Free reusable bags will be available to all residents at all Montgomery County Public Libraries. In addition, free bags are available to families who use the Manna Food Bank.
