Trenton – Legislation sponsored by Senate Environment and Energy Committee Chair Senator Bob Smith and Senate Environment and Energy Committee Vice-Chair Senator Linda Greenstein, which would prohibit stores and food service businesses from providing single-use plastic bags, paper bags, and polystyrene foam cups and food containers to their customers, passed the Senate today. The bill, S-2776, would place a ban on single-use plastics, paper bags, and polystyrene containers which would take effect two years from its signing. “The longer we wait, the more damage we do to the environment and to our public health,” said Senator Smith (D-Middlesex/Somerset). “Thankfully, today we took action to fight against plastic pollution and we begin a path towards a plastic-free future. Plastic bag bans have proven effective elsewhere, for example, Los Angeles saw a ninety-four percent drop in single-use bags.  When this bill is signed into law, it will place New Jersey as the national leader in the fight against plastic pollution. We will become the model for others to follow.”
