Plastic Bag Free

The Township of Esquimalt is pursuing an initiative to make itself a plastic bag free community. The Township is developing a marketing campaign to increase resident and local business participation, as well as highlighting Esquimalt’s position as a progressive, environmentally responsible community.

The plastic bag free campaign is being developed by a group of Royal Roads University students in Environmental Science as a major project. In order for them to determine the best possible message to deliver to residents and businesses, it is important to first understand the consumption habits specific to Esquimalt.
