· Seeking products made from materials to be less harmful to the environment; &
· Preferring products that conserve natural resources
Some bags are exempt under NY State law, therefore recycled plastic bags may still be distributed to consumers in a few specific circumstances, such as a bag used as produce bags for fruits & vegetables, deli meats or prepared foods.
