Manitoba Town Bans Disposable Bags, Fines Bag Pushers

By: Bamboo Magazine - Published: • References: reuters
Leaf Rapids, a Manitoba town north of Winnipeg, will start imposing a $1000 fine on retailers who dole out plastic bags to customers. This move follows on the heels of a 3 cent levy imposed last year, which saw the town of 600 cut its 50,000 bag habit in half.

Ironically, Leaf Rapids is a planned community built to support a copper and zinc mine. Despite its eco-questionable heritage, the town says it takes environmental issues seriously. Indeed. Stats for Manitoba Town Bans Disposable Bags, Fines Bag Pushers Trending: Older & Mild
