New Plastic Bag Ban Now in Effect for Kauai

B.Y.O.B – Don’t forget your grocery bags!

Even before the ban, I would always be in the checkout line and say, “Shoots! (or something like that) I left my bag at home!” Maybe now it will be easier for me to remember. I have loaded my car with reusable, heavy-duty bags, so now I am prepared. A post-it on my steering wheel wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

As of January 11, 2011, the County of Kauai prohibited the distribution of plastic bags in an effort to preserve our beautiful island. The law applies to all retail businesses. So, don’t forget to put your reusable bags in the car, or some convenient location so you can do your part in waste reduction.

Another site that is worth visiting is the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative to find out how the state of Hawaii is going to achieve 70% clean energy by 2030 by drastically reducing our dependence on imported oil.

Krisha,

This is amazing: “the County of Kauai prohibited the distribution of plastic bags in an effort to preserve our beautiful island.”

I always thought about if it was even possible to totally disregard plastic in retail. That’s a great local government initiative.

Good job Kauai…
