Goodbye plastic bags! Last year, Mayor Marty Walsh officially signed the plastic bag ban ordinance banning single-use plastic shopping bags in the City of Boston. So what does this mean? Well, it means, you’ll either need to be bring reusable bags when you go to the supermarket or you’ll be charged a nickel (minimum fee) for one. Also, plastic bags less than 3 millimeters thick will be banned. A five cent minimum fee will be charged for bags provided at checkout; those bags must meet requirements of being reusable, recyclable or compostable.
