Bring Your Own Bag – MidCoast is a group of about 17 Brunswick and Topsham residents. We have been meeting monthly since January 2015 and are focused on both educating the community about the problem of plastics in the environment and on passing town ordinances that will limit the use of single-use disposable bags and ban Styrofoam food containers.
We have talked to many local businesses to get their perspectives and are a member of the Brunswick Downtown Association and Southern MidCoast Chamber of Commerce.
We have reached out to area residents through our BYOB educational booth, which has been set up at various farmers markets, the Brunswick post office, the Wednesday night outdoor summer concerts, the Peace Fair, the monthly Art Walk, Maine Street, Tontine Mall, etc..
