It looks like that plastic bag ban is about to get that much stricter.

Governor Phil Murphy is pushing bill S2776 which bans the use of all single-use bags, plastic straws and polystyrene food containers. It also would add a 10-cent fee on paper bags.

But, depending on the support that this bill garners, paper bags may also be banned all together as well.

This would require everyone to bring their own bags whenever shopping and I guess bring their own food containers when they go out and about?

This sounds like a lot of change to happen at once but supposedly, there are places that have these bans already in place and have adjusted quite nicely.

I will be more than happy to oblige if I am given the reusable bags to get the movement started.

So, what do you think?
