Newport Ban the Bag

Newport Ban the Bag

The Newport Chapter has been doing outreach and education in an effort to ban single use plastic bags in the City of Newport. To date the chapter has been collecting petition signatures, gaining business support, meeting with and testifying before the local city council. In October of 2011, the City of Newport motioned 5-2 to draft an ordinance to eliminate single use plastic checkout bags and while the city is working on ordinance language the chapter continues their outreach. Hearings for the ordinance will be held in the coming months.
