  • Four Twillingate Area Grocery Stores Ban Plastic Bags

    Another group of grocery stores in a Newfoundland community are going plastic bag free.

    The Department of Fisheries and Oceans says the four grocery stores in the Twillingate area have accepted the challenge to eliminate single use plastic bags this year.

    DFO tweeted the news yesterday, saying pledges were signed by each of the store representatives to offer only reusable or paper bags to customers.

    It’s all part of efforts to reduce plastic waste.

    St. John’s Deputy Mayor Sheilagh O’Leary is among those calling for a province-wide ban on single use plastic bags.
