The City of Milwaukie is adopting a Climate Action Plan, and recently adopted a ban on single-use plastic bags at large retailers and at Your Market beginning next season. You can learn more about both of these initiatives plus so much more at Your Market’s second Sustainability Sunday event this Sunday, September 9th.
Look for a gathering of special vendors in the southwest corner of Your Market, including:
- The Master Recyclers will be on hand as usual, with a special worm bin demo at 11am
- Make your own “greener cleaner”, courtesy of Clackamas County and Master Recyclers
- The “Bring Your Own Cup” campaign (encouraging alternates to disposable coffee cups), by Portland’s Recycling Advocates
- Clackamas County Gleaners
- Green Mountain Energy
- Milwaukie Environmental Stewards Group, with a focus on the bag ban and reusable bag options
