Seattle’s plastic bag ban goes into effect on July 1, and area food banks are worried how it will affect their clients. Low-income families will be able to get paper bags for free, but those are not as easy to carry in the rain or on a bus.
CoolMom is organizing a reusable tote bag drive from now through June 15. All new and used reusable bags will be donated to FamilyWorks Food Bank in Wallingford.
You can drop off bags at the Phinney Neighborhood Center (at the office in the blue building), John Stanford International School, TOPS school, and Bagley Elementary.
