Voters choose design for “The Bainbridge Bag”

October 18th, 2012 by Tad Sooter

A salmon, strawberry, fir tree and heron will be emblazoned on the new “Bainbridge Bag.”

Voters chose a design by islander Diane Walker to decorate the reusable cloth bag, which the city will distribute to promote awareness of the fast-approaching ban on plastic shopping bags.

The city put out a call for design ideas in September and received 44 entries, which were displayed at City Hall. Islanders cast 154 votes for their favorite logos and Walker’s illustration emerged the winner.

Her design will be printed on 500 bags to be handed out in Winslow beginning Oct. 31. Merchants can purchase additional bags from the city to sell or give away.

The plastic bag ban takes effect Nov. 1. It prohibits stores from distributing single-use plastic shopping bags at checkout stands. See the city’s website for more information.
