Town of Groton Plastic Reduction Survey

The Town of Groton is considering strategies to
reduce/manage the use of single-use disposable
plastics (such as straws, bags, takeout containers,
cups etc.)

Locally, plastic waste can be found on our
shorelines, beaches and waterways which harms both
the ecosystem and the economy. Globally, plastic
waste ends up circulating in the oceans, disrupting
ocean life and gradually breaking down into
microplastics which work their way into our diets
via the food chain.

Regionally, across the country, and around the world
communities are taking steps to mitigate the plastic
problem. Our neighbors in Stonington and Westerly,
along with many other communities in southeastern
Connecticut are finding solutions and alternative
materials to keep plastic out of the environment
while still supporting local businesses and
economies.

Please help us assess our community’s readiness for
this initiative by taking the following survey.
