Reusable Market Bag
In an effort to reduce the waste of over twenty-three billion plastic bags, New York State issued a plastic bag waste reduction law on March 1, 2020. As stated on ny.gov "all plastic carryout bags (other than an exempt bag) became banned from distribution by anyone required to collect New York State sales tax.” So, in short, it’s time to #BYOBagNY!
The plastic bag ban is an exciting step toward a more sustainable future and we’re definitely here for it! As New York State residents, we’re encouraged to see our home pursuing better environmental impact. But with every change, comes a *sometimes* uncomfortable transition. That’s why, during the month of March, we want to gift everyone who makes a purchase from our online store a reusable market bag!
Each one of our reusable market bags are handmade in Turkey by a small group of artisans using sustainable practices. The bags are incredibly sturdy and pack down easily. Tuck it away in your purse or keep it in your car for easy access. And if you receive a Home & Loft market bag, take a picture and tag us! We’d love to cheer you on!
*A Home & Loft reusable market bag will be included with each purchase during the month of March, while supplies lasts. Colors will vary.
