The Use of Reusable Cloth Bags

May 2010

Members of Girl Scout Troop 275 presented evidence to the Garfield County Board of County Commissioners that the use of both plastic and paper bags is detrimental to the environment. Their insightful presentation resulted in the adoption of resolution number 2010-41 by the Commissioners encouraging the use of reusable cloth bags in lieu of plastic bags in Garfield County.
