The inaugural project of No Waste NOLA is a single-use plastic bag ban, similar to those passed in cities across the country, and the entire states of both California and Hawaii!
Here’s the basic plan:
1) Eliminate single-use-plastic bags at retail checkout counters
2) Attach a ten cent fee on paper backs distributed at retail checkout counters
3)Regulate reusable bags to ensure that the minimum standards promote human and environmental safety.
