Durango is a community that actively takes its stewardship of the environment and future generations seriously. We strive to elect city councilors who work hard to uphold the city’s vision statement: “Durango is an authentic and diverse community living in harmony with its natural environment, pursuing economic, environmental and social sustainability.”
The bag fee ordinance is a small fee on disposable bags at just three locations in the city. It is easily avoidable by bringing reusable bags. This is a small step toward creating a greener, cleaner, more sustainable environment.
I urge all readers to support the city of Durango’s disposable bag ordinance at the ballot box Nov. 5.
