Ocean Futures Society’s Got Sustainability in the Bag

Volunteers will hand out about 6,000 reusable bags in Santa Barbara County to promote A Day Without a Bag.

The Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society will host the Santa Barbara County portion of the statewide campaign A Day Without a Bag on Thursday.

The communitywide event will help develop positive eco-friendly behavior and use of sustainable products. With the help of more than 35 local businesses, city government entities, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations, the Ocean Futures Society will educate residents about the effect of single-use bags on the environment.

Volunteers will hand out about 6,000 reusable bags at more than 24 locations throughout Santa Barbara County.

Students from Santa Barbara High School‘s Dons Net Café will distribute bags from 10:30 a.m. to noon in front of Community West Bank, 1501 State St. in Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
