On Monday, July 28, the Evanston City Council approved an ordinance prohibiting the distribution of point-of-sale disposable plastic shopping bags in Evanston stores larger than 10,000 square feet (ordinance and impacted businesses can be found here). In an effort to help residents make the transition away from using disposable shopping bags the City of Evanston has developed the Reusable Shopping Bas Questionnaire. This questionnaire administered through Engage Evanston will give the City valuable input about what type of reusable shopping bag Evastonians think would best meet their own needs.
The questionnaire is short and easy to answer with pictures of the different styles the City is looking into. We value your input and hope once you have taken the questionnaire you will share it with friends. Click here for the questionnaire.
