Single use plastic bag ban starts in a month

Beginning March 1st, 2020 retail stores will no longer provide, single-use plastic bags. Please get in the habit of bringing your own reusable bags when you go shopping.

People often wonder what bag should they use. The right answer is – any bag that you can reuse is fine. Does not matter whether it is plastic, paper, or canvas bag as long as you reuse them over and over again.
