Carry Reusable Bags on your Shopping Trips!

- Thursday, February 23, 2017

Fibrex GroupEven though New York State has suspended the implementation of the New York City carryout bag law, DSNY (Department of Sanitation, New York) remains committed to reducing the use of single-use plastic bags, and continues to encourage New Yorkers to use convenient reusable bags. Using reusable bags saves taxpayers money, helps reduce the amount of waste we send to landfills, and helps keep bags out of our trees, streets and waterways. DSNY is distributing 400,000 reusable bags across the City. Check the bag giveaway event page for a location near you. Or, take the Zero Waste Pledge to receive a free reusable bag in the mail. And be sure to visit their website regularly for updated information.
