Now is the time to think about how your commitment this week is benefiting New York City. As you go about your day today keep an eye out for plastic bags in the street, gutter, water or trees. When you spy a plastic bag somewhere it shouldn’t be, take a photo and add it to Instagram and/or Facebook and use the hashtag #bagitnyc.
Take a look at this fancy interactive Bag It NYC map to view photos of bag litter across the city – all of the Instagram photos with #bagitnyc show up on this map and it shows which council district the plastic bag litter is in. Help us fill in the map today in your neighborhood!
Also, this weekend be sure to bring your bag with you to your local farmers market – it’s a great way to carry around all of the great stuff you find, without carrying multiple bags.
