The Zero Plastic Project is working! Thanks to the efforts of all of you, and the amazing businesses Fernie is home to, we have gone through thousands of reusable bags but are in constant need of more. If you have extras taking up space please, please drop them off at one of the Zero Plastic stands located at Save-On Foods, Canadian Tire, Fernie Home Hardware, Kevin — Your Independent Grocer, or Grow. Together, we are making a dent in single-use plastic!
