Bag Ban In Puerto Rico Begins in December!
We have noticed an influx of orders for our reusable bags from Puerto Rico because starting this December, disposable plastic bags will be banned throughout the territory. Officials have been working to ban single-use plastic bags for a number of years.
This past December, Governor Alejandro García Padilla signed into law the Act for the Promotion of Reusable Bags and Regulation of Plastic Bags in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Act 247-2015. This law bans retail stores and commercial establishments from handing out disposable plastic bags effective December 24, 2016.
