SafeLaunch Cotton Bag Service: All of the Convenience, None of the Plastic

The Santa Barbara single-use bag ban is officially here.

As opposed to a restriction, this ordinance provides an opportunity for every business not only to embrace reusable bags, but to participate in a great new concept that defines the passion and values of our community: the SafeLaunch Cotton Bag Service.

This free shopping bag service is sponsored by SafeLaunch, its participating business partners and Ablitt’s Cleaners.

The bags enhance customer convenience and protect the marine environment, while at the same time serving our community’s youth.

The mission of SafeLaunch is to prevent teen addiction through education about adolescent brain development. The bags are currently available free of charge at Lazy Acres Market and available to every store that sponsors them.

For more information, email [email protected].

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!
