NJ Bans Single-Use Bags

November 9, 2020 from sfa feed:

"New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has signed a single-use bag ban into law. The ban phases out both plastic and paper disposable bags and polystyrene foodservice items, and allows for plastic straws only upon request. The ban will take effect in May 2022."

"'Plastic bags are one of the most problematic forms of garbage, leading to millions of discarded bags that stream annually into our landfills, rivers, and oceans,' said Governor Murphy, in a statement. 'With today’s historic bill signing, we are addressing the problem of plastic pollution head-on with solutions that will help mitigate climate change and strengthen our environment for future generations.'"
