Bring Your Own Bags in the City of Boston

On Wednesday, Mayor Marty Walsh announced that the plastic bag ban is in effect beginning on October 1st.  Please be sure to bring reusable, recyclable or compostable bags with you whenever you go shopping. Learn more here.  

Back in March it was announced that stores could use plastic bags in an effort to help out residents and businesses during a stressful time.  That time is now over. So get your reusable bags ready or you’ll have to buy one.
