3 Ways FDP Can Help Your City Council, Town or Municipality Implement a Bag Ban

Help the Community Support the Change

Getting a plastic bag can off the ground can be a daunting task that requires a lot of planning and organization. A main component is getting the word out to the community – when people know and understand what and why something is happening they are more likely to throw their support behind it and actively participate. A great way to get the community engaged is to work with local retailers to help them create their very own custom designed reusable shopping bags. These bags can be sold in their stores, or handed out to help spread the word of the disposable bag ban. We here at Factory Direct Promos can help you in your mission!
