Lawmakers Approve NYC 5 Cent Bag Fee
In an attempt to restrict the use on disposable shopping bags, some big cities imposed a bag fee on single use plastic bags. Yesterday, New York City passed a ban which will require retailers to charge and keep $.05 per shopping bag on both paper and plastic.
This will to go into effect on October 1 and will exclude restaurants, wine shops, prescription medications as well as those who use food stamps. For a great alternative on plastic bags, reusable fabric and cotton canvas shoppers are being put into place to be reused time and time again. Not only are reusable shoppers a great alternative, they are designed to be fashion forward and to match your company’s brand.
