An outcome of the Bag Ban is that many cheap bags are available at stores. People often will buy a $1 bag when they forget one, and now have too many bags floating around their houses.
Students and staff at Ecole Dickinsfield School came up with an innovative solution the problem: Take a Bag, Leave a Bag. Modelled on the "Take a penny, leave a penny" idea, customers can bring their extra bags to stores to leave in designated boxes. If they forget a bag, they can grab one.
Students, staff and parents are excited with this idea.
