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! Longport’s resolution is only the second we know of in New Jersey. Brigantine was the first to adopt a similar resolution in 2011. The Surfrider Foundation South Jersey Chapter is happy Longport has become involved with our Downbeach Bag Campaign and has taken this first step to encourage reusables.

You can read Longport’s resolution here.

If you are a manager at a store in Ventnor, Margate, or Longport and would like to attend the Bag It showing at Steve & Cookie’s please RSVP to sustainablemargate@margate-nj.com. Seating is limited. We will have light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.
