On Monday, January 13th, 2020, the NJ Senate passed a bill eliminating the use of single use plastics but the measure, which would have been the strongest in the nation, has yet to be voted on by the NJ Assembly. The hold up may be due to a debate over whether paper bags should also be included in the ban.
ANJEC credits the positive actions taken so far on public and municipal support. They urge all voters to contact their Assembly representatives and also to encourage their municipalities to take up the matter on a local level.
