Hello Ewing Green Team Friends!   My name is Patrick Otey and for my BSA Eagle Project I have chosen to work with the Ewing Green Team to create a new initiative called The Ewing Better Bag Project.   In an effort to promote sustainability and reduce plastic waste, I will be conducting a citizen survey aimed at discovering what customers are doing with the plastic bags they get while shopping and encouraging them to use reusable bags instead.

By helping to educate citizens about the harmful lasting effects of plastic bags and providing them with several free reusable bags, it is my hope that more people will take this small but important step to alter their shopping habits to help the environment. I will be hosting an information table, conducting surveys, and distributing free reusable bags donated by Ewing Township and Mercer County at several Ewing retailers on the following dates:

  • Sunday July 9:  11:00 – 2:00 pm , at Shoprite of Ewing
  • Saturday July 15:  10:00 – 1:00pm, at the Trenton Farmer’s Market

Thank you for supporting this important effort!  We hope to see you at these events.

Patrick Otey
