SAGCC President Rick Small asks, “Tucsonans, how do you feel about plastic bag useage?”
To assist the city’s plastic bag working group in their deliberations and their recommendations about reducing the number of plastic bags in the community, a survey has been created to gauge community attitudes toward a ban on or restriction of single use plastic bags. Share your thoughts at plastic bag survey.
Solar Across Tucson
Small reports that the City of Tucson Solar Coordinator, Bruce Plenk, provided updated figures at the All Energy Lunch, about the number of commercial solar installations — many of them on city buildings — and urged attendees to visit www.SolarOneStopAZ.org to locate the many commercial sites across the community.
