CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- New Castle Sustainability Advisory Board (NCSAB) has announced that Kenneth Nohavicka and Casey Davidson are the winners of its Reusable Bag Art Contest.
Through their artwork they have shown a commitment to reducing litter, protecting wildlife and conserving natural resources, the board said. The contest was held at the end of the prior school year and winners were selected in June.
Bags featuring their artwork are being sponsored by Ted Holmes of Douglas Elliman, and will be handed out at Community Day on Saturday, Sept. 20, near the Chappaqua Train Station. Steve Wolk, chair of the New Castle Sustainability Advisory Board, will officially recognize Nohavicka and Davidson for their excellent work and thank Holmes for his donation.
The Reusable Bag Art Contest is part of the NCSAB’s Reusable Bag Initiative. Other entries may be featured on posters around New Castle as part of the NCSAB’s education and outreach campaign to inform residents about the Reusable Bag Initiative.
This initiative is designed to encourage residents to increase their use of multi-use, reusable carryout bags and to limit the number of single-use bags used when shopping.
