About

Welcome to the BagItNYC page!

Mission statement:  Our coalition of non-profits and community organizations is united in seeking to eliminate the needless waste and pollution that single-use carryout bags create. To do so, we support legislation proven effective elsewhere: legislation that includes a fee on ALL carryout bags (plastic, paper, thicker plastic that qualify as reusable, compostable) or a ban on thin plastic bags with a fee on all other carryout bags.
