TAKE THE PLASTIC PLEDGE!


This year’s event is focused on waste reduction, especially single-use plastic items. Attendees will have the opportunity to make a collective impact by pledging to reduce consumption of commonly used single-use items such as disposable coffee cups, plastic utensils, and plastic straws. Learn about other ways to reduce plastic consumption by visiting the following booths:

  • Sno-Isle Food Co-Op will provide tips to help minimize your single-use plastic consumption while grocery shopping; 
  • The City of Everett will provide information on their recent city-wide plastic bag ban;
  • Cedar Grove compost will have a mini-class on standard plastic (petroleum based) and compostable ‘plastic’ (plant based), and how to identify each.
