Legislation plastic bags

As of March 1, 2020, a new bag waste reduction law will go into effect in New York State. One way to contribute to this reduction is, as consumers, to use alternatives to plastic bags such as compostable or cloth bags. Thus, the initiative #BYOBagNY – Bring your own bag has been launched, urging inhabitants to bring reusable bags with them every time they go shopping

This Bag Waste Reduction Act applies to more than just grocery stores. Whether you’re going to the grocery store, to buy clothes, or to a home improvement store, be sure to bring bags. Together we can contribute to respecting the environment
