CLAYTON — Environmental stewardship group Save the River has begun preliminary outreach efforts to convince local waterfront communities to stop using plastic bags and other plastic disposables.

Executive Director John M. Peach said the group has finished the display for its replace single-use plastics initiative and contacted a few business owners about hanging displays in stores. The 1000 Island Bait Store, Clayton Shurfine Supermarket and entrepreneur Ronald G. Thomson heard the nonprofit’s pitch, Mr. Peach said.

“The Big M (Supermarket) has agreed to let us put up stickers by the cash registers,” he said. “Nobody’s said, ‘No, we’re not going to do it.’”
