Reducing waste is good for communities and the surrounding environment. Bring it Austin is an education and outreach initiative aimed at helping Austinites and businesses make the shift to reusable bags and reducing the number of single-use bags that litter our neighborhoods or wind up in area landfills. By distributing free reusable bags and sharing information with the public, retailers, and other businesses, partners throughout Austin are helping to make the Single-Use Carryout Bag Ordinance a success.
