City launches last minute plastic bag ordinance ad campaign – KVUE TV News
Around Austin, you can find iconic statues that help give the city its unique personality. From the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue at Auditorium Shores to the Willie Nelson figure downtown. They are the things tourists, and locals alike, flock to for photos. And now, they are the stars of a new ad campaign. The City of Austin's TV and radio campaign to inform Austinites of the single-use bag ban began airing Monday, a mere 11 days before the ban takes effect.
An announcer says: "Beginning March 1st, thin, plastic shopping bags won't be available in Austin. So keep a reusable bag handy, and always remember to bring it."
Post staff writer Stephanie Myers explores the bag ban further in her recent feature.
