Plastic Bag Ban

Our first project and the project that launched Sustainable Crested Butte was Crested Butte’s Plastic Bag Ban.  In August of 2016, Sustainable Crested Butte succeeded in getting the town council to sign an ordinance banning single-use plastic bags, with a few exceptions, in the town of Crested Butte, beginning September 1, 2018.
