Deadline approaches to submit designs for Lakewood’s reusable bag contest

Posted

A logo, a photo, drawings and even a design from a child are entries so far as a design for Lakewood’s upcoming Earth Day reusable bags. The contest started the first week of January and ends on Feb. 3.

The contest is meant to bring attention to the city’s resources about Colorado’s state law that just came into effect requiring a charge of 10 cents for single-use plastic bags, and phasing them out altogether by 2024, according to Lakewood Public Information Officer Stacie Oulton.

Judging the designs will be city staff who have worked on the city’s resources about the law, including Sustainability Manager Jonathan Wachtel, Economic Development Specialist Katie Faltys, Revenue Manager Nicole Stehr and Oulton.

The bags will be distributed for free at the city’s annual Earth Day Celebration and other events throughout the rest of the year, according to Oulton.

So far there are nine entries, but more are welcome and can be submitted here.
