Get Involved

To get involved in the campaign to pass a plastic bag law in New York, click here.


One of most important things that individuals can do is to simply use less plastic bags, this means:

  • don't take a bag when you're only purchasing one or two items
  • bring a reusable bag to the store whenever you shop
  • encourage your friends to do the same

Also, individuals can encourage more wide-spread support of plastic bag reduction by:

  • learning about the harms that plastic bags cause - and telling your friends
  • encouraging local businesses to adopt their own carryout bag reduction policy 
  • contacting your city council to encourage them to adopt a local plastic bag ban or fee
  • contacting environmental organizations in your area to ask if they're involved in a bag campaign

We are available for consulting for local bag ordinance campaigns - we have the experience to help you get your community started on this issue effectively.
