Plastic Bag/Polystyrene Container Ban

The State Legislature has passed a bill governing banning use of plastic bags and polystyrene containers.

Specifically, plastic bags and polystyrene containers cannot be provided to consumers by any store (except for some items which must be packed in plastic). Stores (e.g. large grocery stores and supermarkets) which are 2,500 square feet or greater may not provide paper or plastic bags, but can only sell reusable bags to consumers.
