The purpose of this survey is to determine the community's current use of single use plastic bags and what barriers exist that make it difficult or challenging to use reusable bags. The outcomes of the survey will be used to design a program to assist and support the community to reduce their use of plastic bags in preparation of the removal of plastic bags from large chain supermarkets. All survey respondents will go in the draw to win a Live with Less Plastic Pack which includes Reusable bags, reuse containers, a Keep Cup and various other environmental goodies.
