BAGS - EXEMPTIONS
Types of Bags | It is important to consider ALL types of single-use carryout bags in your region and address these bag types in policy. We recommend including as many types of bags in your regulation, with minimal exceptions.
Low Income Exceptions | To reduce the burden on those who will have a hard time affording reusable bags, or paying for a disposable bag when they forget to bring a reusable, include a pathway for these in the policy.
Business Hardship | For businesses, include a clause that allows them to apply for a time extension – though this should be rarely used.
