I pledge to adopt reusable bags and eliminate single-use plastic bags from my inventory.

I recognize that single-use plastic bags have become an environmental problem and threaten the natural beauty of the Finger Lakes region. I am committed to doing my part to protect the health of our vibrant ecosystem to ensure that it remains a beautiful place to live and play for both residents of and visitors to our region for seven generations and beyond.

I am encouraged by recent legislative action in many New York communities, including East Hampton, Mamaroneck, Rye, and Southampton.


Signed,
