Citizens with Bag It, Duluth's "sacred scroll": the list of more than 2,000 people and businesses asking the Duluth City Council to take action on single-use bags, straws, and styrofoam to-go containers.

Jamie Harvie still doesn't know why it's taken so long for the Duluth City Council to take up a proposed ordinance to ban single-use bags (paper and plastic), straws, and styrofoam to-go containers.

He's just happy the ordinance is scheduled to be considered October 14.

And embedded in the ordinance, he says, is the shift in behaviour that he believes will move "the economy in service to the sacred, instead of the other way around."
