Georges River Land Trust has received a gift of reusable shopping bags courtesy of Eastern Tire and Auto Service of Rockland in support of the Land Trust’s greater mission to protect the environment. They are currently available for distribution to members and supporters at the Land Trust’s office on the second floor of the Free Press building at 8 N. Main Street in Rockland, while they last.
Eastern Tire and Auto Service owner Alvin Chase, who also serves as Board Chair for Georges River Land Trust, was moved to order the bags by Rockland’s adoption of the ban against single-use plastic bags that went into effect on January 1. “This is a great step the Rockland City Council has taken to approve a ban on these materials,” Mr. Chase said, “and Eastern Tire and Auto Service wanted to work in conjunction with the Land Trust to support this change.”
Thank you Eastern Tire and Auto Service!!
