The open house will help retailers prepare for the upcoming plastic bag ban that goes into effect July 1, 2014. City and County staff will be on hand to answer questions, discuss outreach efforts and have samples of bags on display. Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, and Thurston County (the unincorporated areas) have adopted an ordinance that bans stores from giving out many types of single-use plastic bags. Stores must also charge at least 5 cents for paper carryout bags to encourage people to bring reusable bags.
