"Our goal is to drastically reduce the consumption of plastic bags on the territory of the municipality. As a resort that annually welcomes hundreds of thousands of Bulgarian and foreign guests, it is our duty to show that good examples can become sustainable practices. That is why, within the framework of the July 3 initiative, we have tried to include all - children, parents, shop owners, hotels and restaurants. I think the change çan be done through the participation of every citizen, "said Georgi Ikonomov, Mayor of Bansko Municipality.
In the celebration of the International No Plastic Day will be involved the grocery stores in the city. Today they restrict the sale of polyethylene bags by replacing them with paper provided by the City Hall of Bansko.
