Paper or plastic? How about neither?

Bag it, Duluth

Jamie Harvie still doesn't know why it's taken so long for the Duluth City Council to take up a proposed ordinance to ban single-use bags (paper and plastic), straws, and styrofoam to-go containers.

He's just happy the ordinance is scheduled to be considered October 14.

And embedded in the ordinance, he says, is the shift in behaviour that he believes will move "the economy in service to the sacred, instead of the other way around."

More information about Bag It, Duluth is available at their website and on their Facebook page.

One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
