New York State Single-Use Plastic Bag Ban

We’ve been talking about this since before Christmas. It was passed. It has been coming since BEFORE CHRISTMAS. Yet, as much as the news agencies have been covering it, as much as we cashiers in various stores have been talking about it, telling our customers….

We still have people who are complaining about it; claim they hadn’t heard about it; claiming it isn’t going to happen.

It IS happening, whether you like it or not. It HAS been discussed and mentioned all over the place. And we need it. Don’t believe me?

These pictures were all taken RIGHT OUTSIDE my store. The bags didn’t even make it into customer’s cars? But there’s not a problem?

Recycling helps, but it can only help so much… and only if people actually do it. From the state of alot of highway ditches, not everyone does.

We all need to do our part to take care of our planet. It’s the only one we have, and we treat her like she doesn’t matter. WAKE UP PEOPLE! We lose the clean air and clean water; we lose the wildlife, the flora and fauna…. we lose ourselves. Not just spiritually, but literally.
