BYOB Art Contest
Wilton Go Green brought this concept to the Board of Selectmen and obtained a grant to educate the residents about the negative impact of single use bags. Through an art contest conducted in the schools, the young people of Wilton become involved and the winning art designs were produced on 2,000 bags which were given away at the supermarkets. A baseline usage of single use bags was taken at the markets in January and this will be repeated at the end of the six months. If the stated goal of at least 50% of Wiltonians using reusable bags is not achieved, then Wilton Go Green will approach the Board of Selectman and ask for furthur action.
