Uneven Transition

Dec 19, 2018

To the Editor:

Well, the plastic bag ban is now in full force on most of LBI and in all of Manahawkin. It’s interesting to see how the various retailers are handling the transaction.

ShopRite is providing free, heavy-duty, large, reusable plastic bags with handles, and I understand they will be doing this into January. Target now provides a strong paper bag free of charge. Others, including a large food retailer, are saving a lot of money by no longer having to provide plastic bags and charging money for cheap paper bags. 

These are only a few of the retailers that I know are transitioning to accommodate this new law, but from what I hear, many are not being very supportive to the consumer.
