“Bring Your Own Bag” on Earth Day; Thursday, April 22, 2010

DHS Student Michelle Arseneault is continuing her campaign to reduce or eliminate single use plastic shopping bags.

Michelle tells us that “Earth Day is April 22nd.  A day where people, worldwide, are considering the effects of pollution.  One way we can help is to reduce the use of single use plastic shopping bags.  Please support local businesses that will NOT be handing them out this Earth Day.”
