June 16 – Newburyport Community Resilience Circles Kick Off “Citizens for Sustainable Bagging”

Members of Transition Newburyport and two local Community Resilience Circles are kicking off an initiative to move our coastal community past single-use plastic bags.

An initial meeting will be held to discuss strategies on Saturday, June 16, 1 pm at Central Congregational Church, 14 Titcomb Street, Newburyport.

Marjorie Green from Hanover, NH will be talking with the group about a similar, successful initiative in the Upper Connecticut River Valley that moved that community to cloth bags.

We are looking for a mix of all ages for this project. There is NO commitment required – come if you are curious.
