The New York State plastic bag ban begins on March 1, 2020.
What does this mean for you as a consumer and a business owner? Just how environmentally friendly is the NY State plastic bag ban?
The new law doesn't stop pollution if it just switches everyone to another throwaway bag. Did you know there will still be 23 billion single, disposable checkout bags used every year even with the plastic bag ban? Not only do paper bags require cutting down trees, they can cost 10x more than plastic, raising prices on EVERY item we buy.
Following a screening of the award-winning film Bag It, George Povall, Executive Director of All Our Energy invites you to join the Conversation about the new law, its impact and alternatives.
