Dear Mayor Rachel Bailey and the Councillors of the Town of Lunenburg,
I am writing to voice my support for the bylaw brought forward to Council by Plastic Free Lunenburg, with the support of Lunenburg citizens and businesses, to ban single use plastics* in Lunenburg.
Our town is inhabited and visited by people from across the world and, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, we are recognized for wise planning, distinctive architecture, natural beauty, and pristine surroundings.
Moving forward on a ban of single use plastics will show visitors and residents alike that we are not only respectful of the past, we are also forward-looking. A ban will help ensure that the Town of Lunenburg continues to be a beautiful place to live as well as a leader in business, tourism, resource management, and waste management.
I am asking you to vote to support the bylaw to ban the sale and distribution of single use plastics.
*The proposed ban includes single use plastic straws, check-out bags, produce/bulk food bags, cutlery, single-serving condiment packets, disposable ready-to-eat food containers, single-serving beverage bottles/containers (under 750 ml), and disposable beverage cups and lids.
