We're a coalition of organizations and individuals committed to major reductions in and eventual elimination of the single use disposable shopping bag. Our bag habit is a bad habit.

4.4 billion bags annually - yeah, that's billion! That's how many single use plastic shopping bags we 8.8 million NJ consumers use a year. It's about 500 bags per person. We can significantly reduce this stream of garbage, reduce this litter, and it's devastating impact on the environment very simply: stop using the bags. One of the most effective way to do this is to put a fee on all single use disposable bags. Nothing like charging 10 cents a bag to make us all rethink "how much do I really need this bag?"
