New Year in Moab ... Plastic Out, Reusable In!


The Moab City Council, in September 2018, voted unanimously to enact a ban on single-use, carry-out type plastic bags. The goal is to reduce the use of throwaway plastic products, particularly lightweight plastic bags, which are a litter problem and escape into waterways and oceans where they are harmful to animals and may enter the food chain as they degrade into smaller and smaller – but still plastic – pieces. The ban is another step toward the City meeting its goals as established in its “2020 Vision: A Sustainable Moab Plan,” which was passed by the Moab City Council in 2008.

The MoabFirst Event

The “MoabFirst” event will take place on January 18, 2018, 2-4 PM, in front of the Moab Information Center on the corner of Main and Center Streets (weather permitting). The Moab Area Travel Council will be giving away the reusable bag to anyone in Moab supporting the Moab City Plastic Bag Ban. We will ask each person, before they receive the bag, what two things they will do in their community to support sustainability in 2019.
