Plastic Bag Ordinance

The Plastic Bag Ordinance is a project aiming to implement a ban on plastic bags in the city of Medford. The ordinance has been recently introduced to neighboring cities as Cambridge and Somerville, requiring major businesses to charge customers a minimum fee for each plastic bag used for their purchases. This ordinance encourages citizens to bring their own bags while shopping to not only avoid the plastic bag fee, but to also reduced the usage of plastic bags as a whole, reducing the effects they have on the communities. By implementing their own Plastic Bag Ordinance, the city of Medford would be joining this movement to diminish the impact we have on the world’s environment.
