The Plastic Waste Reduction Team is working to reduce single-use plastic consumption in Needham.

One Initiative – Two Approaches

Our first goal is to reduce plastic shopping bag waste in Needham by:

  1. Collaborating with the Select Board to update a previous policy and pass a new plastic bag by-law in town.  We hope to join the over 150 towns and cities in Massachusetts who have already passed similar plastic bag bans. To learn more, see our PSA below:


  1. Creating an educational outreach campaign to encourage visitors to Needham stores to shop with their reusable bags. From elementary schools to local community groups, we are educating people about the benefits of choosing reusable bags over plastic or paper.
