Take Thurston County's Plastic Bag Survey!

Thurston County wants your input!

Residents in Thurston County use an estimated 90 million plastic shopping bags per year. On average, each bag is used for only 12 minutes. Besides the energy and resources used to make bags, they can affect our environment and create a financial burden on local government when we are done using them.

Plus, survey participants get a free reusable bag!

Particularly passionate about this wholly unnecessary threat to our environment? Go to one of the community meetings to express your opinion!
