Tofino Embraces Hybrids, Trashes Plastic Bags


Tofino’s committee of the whole backed recommendations that may soon require the district to purchase recycled office-supply products and hybrid vehicles. Committee members will also write local businesses, asking how the community can cut down on the use of non-biodegradable plastic bags.

Coun. Derek Shaw, the author of the resolutions, said the purpose of the policies is to ensure the District of Tofino promotes ecologically and socially sustainable products. He said council should consider joining a socially sustainable purchasing network.
