Reminder – Freshfields Single-Use Plastics Ban

As you may already know, the Town  Council of Kiawah Island has passed an ordinance banning single-use plastic bags, plastic straws, and styrofoam. It will go into effect this Sunday, September 8, 2019.

Freshfields Village is a part of the Town of Kiawah Island, so all the facilities in the village will have to adhere to this new policy. This includes Harris Teeter, which like the other shopping and dining facilities, encourage the use of reusable bags. They will continue to provide recyclable paper bags.

Freshfields Village is giving away free reusable bags on Mondays during the Farmers Market between 4:00 pm and 9:00 pm.
