Put Your Stamp on Hastings!

The Hastings-on-Hudson Conservation Commission, in collaborations with the Hastings-on-Hudson Arts Commission, presents a design contest for a logo (or artwork) that fosters pride in Hastings for its efforts to keep its community green and beautiful.

We will print the winning logo on reusable bags in support of the recently passed plastic bag ban.  In addition, we will integrate the winning logo into informational materials and signage supporting the new law, include window decals, flyers, posters and banners.

The ban on single-use carry-out plastic bags in stores and restaurants in Hastings goes into effect on January 1st, 2015, and will reduce waste and littler and protect local waterways and wildlife.
