Council on Aging of Central Oregon
Council on Aging used the Community Innovation Fund in 2020 to implement reusable bags for their Meals on Wheels community-based food delivery program for aging adults across Central Oregon. In addition to improving the experience for recipients, with this switch from plastic bags to reusable bags, they were able to save an estimated 170-525 pounds of plastic bag waste per month!
