New Jersey passes ban on both plastic and paper single-use bags at large grocery stores

The bill bans single-use plastic bags and single-use paper bags at grocery stores that are 2,500 square feet or larger. Polystyrene containers and plastic straws are also banned but consumers could ask for a plastic straw.

“This bill literally will kill jobs in New Jersey for some of our current manufacturing facilities and is sending them to arguably the world’s largest polluter which is China that manufactures the reusable bags,” Schepisi said on the Assembly floor.
