2020 Bag Updates

Single Use Plastic Bag Bans By Community

Community |  December 31, 2019

There are many ways to work towards a cleaner future, and one way is to help reduce the impact plastic bags have on our environment.

Many municipalities in both Oregon and Washington are passing *single use plastic bag bans and having businesses charge customers for the bags used to create awareness and encourage customers to bring their own bag.  Bag laws vary by city, and 2020 will bring additional updates as more communities continue to move away from plastic bags and/or charge for bags used at the register.

Mud Bay joined the Pet Sustainability Coalition in the summer of 2019. By joining PSC we are embracing our passion for our planet and committing to continually improving how we impact our earth in addition to supporting pet parents in doing the same.

Below are the communities where we have stores, that have banned single use plastic bags:
