Statement from Councilwoman Ryan on Governor Raimondo's Executive Order to Reduce Reliance on Single-use Plastics

For over a year I have worked with constituents, various community groups, and our partners in city government here in Providence to bring about an ordinance that will reduce the dependence of single-use plastic bags in our state’s capital. I’m thrilled that Governor Raimondo is taking this bold action to move our state forward and exploring ways we can all lessen our reliance on single-use plastics. It’s imperative to our state’s economy and to future generations that we protect our oceans and waterways from the scourge of plastic pollution, and Governor Raimondo’s Executive Order will help achieve that end. I thank the Governor for her leadership on this important issue.
