Sorry for the lapse in news on the proposed Pinelands Pipeline. Things have been more than a little bit interesting on the Pinelands front since we last provided an update. As was noted in our last post on the subject,
The Downbeach Bag Campaign is hosting a showing of the award-winning documentary Bag It on Tuesday March 10th, from 6-8pm at Steve & Cookie’s in Margate. Attendance is reserved for Ventnor, Margate, and Longport merchants so we can start a conversation about reducing litter in these communities.
In February, the Borough of Longport adopted a resolution encouraging their residents to use reusable shopping bags!
The January 27th showing of the award-winning documentary Bag It has been postponed due to the weather conditions. This showing, in partnership with Sustainable Margate and the Ventnor Green Team, will be rescheduled for March. More information to follow.
As part of the campaign to tackle plastic bags in the downbeach area (Ventnor, Margate, Longport) the Chapter cleaned up the side of Wellington Ave between the salt marsh and Ventnor Plaza. See below for what the area look like before the cleanup.
