And, it’s easy.
Beginning January 1, 2012, bring your reusable bags when you shop. You fight litter, help the County save money on cleaning up litter from local waterways and save yourself the 5-cent charge on any plastic or paper bag you receive to carryout purchases from stores in the County.
It’s not only time to turn the calendar and go green, it’s time to say “Thank You!” to the many retailers and environmental, community and civic groups that have stepped up and offered to help us spread the word about the “what,” “why,” “how” and “when” of the bag law to their employees and/or members, as well as the general public.
You can see pictures of some of the bag activities that have been held, get answers to your questions about the bag law and see the impressive list of outreach campaign partners online at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/bag.
Also check out Facebook for photos and updates on the bag outreach campaign and follow us on Twitter.
