Two More US States Have Approved Bans on Single-Use Plastic Bags

Last week Maine and Vermont passed legislation making them the fourth and fifth US states to ban single-use plastic bags. The bill will apply to the sale of single-use plastic bags in grocery stores, although supermarkets must charge 5 cents for recyclable paper bags or reusable plastic bags that can withstand at least 75 uses. Restaurants and charities, however, are exempt from the fee. In Vermont, Gov. Phil Scott (R) approved bill S. 113, which implements similar bans, except the legislation goes one step further by prohibiting restaurants, bars, and food retailers from giving away straws and polystyrene containers. In order to give businesses enough time to adapt to the law, the bill is set to go into full effect on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2020.
