Like the WSJ editorial. I emailed gov Coumo this past Sunday to push off the plastic ban for a few months using this argument

Unfortunately most of what Coumo does regarding the environment and COVID-19 and pretty much anything else is posturing and virtue signaling and more likely than not in complete disregard of actual data.

The same could be said about most politicians but the problem is acute in Left wing and Progressive ones.

As of 3/1/20, the new plastic bag legislation took effect. However, pursuant to an Order signed in NYS Supreme Court, Albany County on 3/16/20, DEC agreed to take no enforcement action until 5/15/20.

This does not affect the local laws in New York City, Suffolk County and Tompkins County requiring that the 5-cent paper carryout bag reduction fee must be charged on paper carryout bags.

It's almost worth this whole pandemic just for the enjoyment of seeing stores like Trader Joe's banning reusable bags :)

Actually the TJ's I saw this at was in NJ and they didn't charge for paper bags. (I don't know if plastic is banned there)

I saw a sign in stop and shop that this is being reinstated tomorrow 10/19  >:(
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Isn't a health risk to reuse bags that can transmit covid

Amazing. I guess NY is cancelling covid after all.

Why cancel? You can't lockdown without cases. Things were stagnating a bit, so some genius asked

and here we are.

Well it's better that they're reminding everyone how crazy they are now and not waiting until after the election

Will they delay implementation in red zones?

Will a store that's in a red zone be allowed to provide shopping bags to customers who come from outside the red zone?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I hope he doesn't enforce this ban, with the same force he's enforcing the lockdowns...

Is it all plastic bags or just disposable? I mean judaica world and Mr Greens bags are famously reusable, the quintessential mikvah bags.
