Plastic Bag Bans in Northern MB

Visitors to the communities of Thompson, Leaf Rapids and Snow Lake are reminded to bring their reusable shopping bags with them when doing shopping in these communities as there are plastic bag bans in effect. 

The bans are in place in the hopes of easing stress on the environment caused by plastic bags - the bags do not break down in landfills and are not recyclable in our area.  So please, visit us in the north and feel welcome to shop at local businesses, but please remember to bring your reusable shoppping bag!
