Darien to side with the Environment…..

Work with us to save the environment by encouraging the use of reusable bags. Sign the petition that will request the Board of Selectmen to put in an ordinance to ban plastic shopping bags in Darien. To learn more, send us an email, join us for the following events in town, and stay tuned for more:

  • in the bag : the art and politics of the reusable bag movement. This show, displayed at the Darien Nature Center, features a selection of art work as well as beautifully designed plastic bags made from recycled materials.

    As a kick off for the In the Bag exhibit at the Darien Nature Center, this beautiful bag made of recycled candy wrappers was raffled off. The lucky winner was Pat Atkin, retired Tokeneke School art teacher. An array of beautiful bags made of recycled plastic bags, juice boxes and yellow pages are on display at the Darien Nature Center through April 23. Nature Center hours are weekdays from 9:00 – 4:00 and on Saturday from 9:00 – 1:00.

  • Presentation to the Darien Board of Selectman on April 11th. More information will be posted shortly.
  • Bag It! Was screened at the Darien Library on March 6th at 5:30 pm. This movie provided a better understanding of the negative impacts that plastic bags have on our environment and on society.

    Am thinking of bringing my young kids along to see the movie. We have reduced our plastic bag intake considerably in the past 2 years or so.

    That’s great, it’s so important to make them aware at an early age! This movie is appropriate for all ages.
