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!
