The New Jersey State Assembly is considering a bill that would ban the use of plastic bags by retailers larger than 10,000 square feet, effective December 31, 2010. If the bill passes, it would require that the use of such bags be cut in half a year earlier.
KC's View:
Best I can tell, if plastic bags are an environmental threat, it doesn’t matter the size of the store that hands them out. Bans ought to be total or not at all.
