Single use plastic bags and their usage is changing across New Jersey.
State of New Jersey announces that starting May 4th, local stores will not be providing single-use plastic bags.
What can we do?
Look for alternatives to single-use plastic bags. Shop around and buy a few for different types of stores. Maybe one for veggies, one for heavy items at least would make sense.
Alternatives to plastic bags
- Cloth bags
- Store branded paper bags
- Recyclable paper bags
- Mesh bags
- Jute bags
- Tote bags
- Cardboard boxes
- Carton holders (like the ones you see near the exit of wholesale shops)
Feels good to take a positive step towards a better future!
