Plastic bag ban in NYC has officially begun

Published by:

New York not only kicked off its plastic bag ban Sunday, but shoppers will also have to pay a little more if they don’t bring their own bags. Paper bags will cost shoppers five cents, so it’s a good idea to start bringing reusable bags. It was estimated by the New York State Plastic Bag Task Force that New York residents use 23 billion plastic bags every year, and many times, they end up in waterways and landfills or littering trees. They can also harm wildlife.
