NEW - Retail Toolkit
Oregon passed a statewide bill (HB 2509) banning the distribution of single-use plastic checkout bags effective January, 2020. In an effort to help local businesses educate their staff and customers we've developed a poster and till topper that are free to use. Please feel free to print as many as you need.
Plastic Straw Restrictions
Oregon also passed Senate Bill 90, restricting the distribution of single-use plastic straws at restaurants and convenience stores except upon request by the customer (or in a drive-thru). Please see the linked bill for more details.
