Cuomo would probably be the first person caught with a plastic bag.

My question is can you get arrested if you use a plastic bag to carry a 2 liter soda bottle that you are drinking with a plastic straw.

All NYC Zoos and Botanical Gardens are not offering straws with the drinks anymore ( few good years).so we can use something else or use reusable water bottles not plastic. It’s so good to see our city not messy specially after a Big Events when all streets are trashed with garbages

It may be inconvenient for you and that’s not easy to all of a sudden have to deal with something new. At the same time, their focus and goal for implementing this new law is not to’inconvenience’ you. There are reasons for this new law. Maybe, if you have some time, research the effect that one time use plastic has on other things that we use, need and soon may not have anymore because of our plastic usage. I carelessly also used one time use plastic all the time. Until I read up a bit more on the whole fuss… Read more »

Great news. Whoever is complaining, they didn’t have plastic bags years ago, figure it out. We have to start thinking about the future generations and not just ourselves. All this pollution and plastic is making our animals and water unhealthy . It’s time to care about the beautiful world Hashem created and make more effort to preserve it.

Bring you own bag! Keep it in the trunk, carry it to your shopping cart, give it to the bagger by checkout and walla! Your very own bags to keep!

Now I need to buy a carton of platic bags on Amazon and bring it with me whenever I go shopping. All it does is save the store money from buying the plastic bags. STUPID!

Reusable bags

Exactly the point! Just please don’t buy disposable. The point is for you to bring your own reusable bags.

How are you supposed to know how many bags to bring? What is you change your mind and you see something on sale and decide to stock up? Reusable bags are heavy, and if you do big shopping you can need a dozen or more.

reuseable is doable

reuseable are not heavy. i keep a reuseable in my shoulder bag. its folds into a 2″ x 1″ keychain. it holds a lot. Plus i keep shopping bag holder which makes carrying it a lot easier.

Aother iron-fisted government ruling.

Bwahahahahaha! Do your research! It’s worse for the environment to ban the bags. The paper bags are much worse, between cutting down trees and the “carbon footprint” to make them. Another feel good legislation from your nanny state, telling you how to live your life. Wait until they ban meat on Mondays…. Oh wait. They already did that. Enjoy! Maybe you guys will start voting this garbage out???
