Green Wednesdays - Plastics Free Farmers market


Click To Play the video about the Plastic Ban Campaign
Plastic bags will soon be a thing of the past at the Fairfax Farmers Market. Sustainable Fairfax and a local organization called the Inconvenient Group join forces with Wednesday's Fairfax Farmers' Markets as they hand out free reusable cloth bags to shoppers in an effort to create a plastics free market and town.

At future market nights, volunteers will provide a demonstration on ways people can reduce the number of plastic bags they use.

Paints are available at the market so children can decorate the bags.
