Bring Your Own Bag Madison (BYO Madison) is a group of Madison, Connecticut residents dedicated to raising awareness about the toxic effects of single-use plastics on our health, community, waterways, environment, and economy.
Increase the use and distribution of reusable bags.
Pass an ordinance prohibiting
single-use plastic checkout bags.
Place a small fee on paper bags in order to create an incentive to bring reusable bags.
Sign our petition to help us reach our goal of at least 500 signatures in order for us to present it to the Board of Selectmen.
The good news we already have 400+ signatures, so you are in good company!
Westport was the first town in Connecticut to pass an ordinance – in 2008!
