If you’re like us, you frequently leave your reusable bags in the car when you head into the grocery store. But that has to stop – really, it’s the law. Starting May 4, stores in New Jersey won’t be able to give you single-use plastic bags when you check out. You can bring your own bag, basket, box, whatever, but don’t forget because there won’t be any free option. (You are allowed to bring some of those plastic bags you have piled up in your cabinet. The law limits the use of new bags, not ones you already have.) And get ready to bring your reusable bags wherever you shop – the ban applies to retail stores, convenience stores, pharmacies and restaurants.
