Welcome! Here's a resource for New Yorkers who support legislation to reduce single-use carryout bags.

On May 5, 2016, the New York City Council adopted the  #BYOBag bill (Int. No. 209-A) that will require a 5-cent minimum fee on all carryout bags provided at check-out at all retailers in NYC. The bill goes into effect on October 1, 2016.

Thank you to all of our coalition members that made this happen!

To keep up to date on the NYC bill, follow BagItNYC on Facebook or @BagItNYC on Twitter.
