Just say no to plastic shopping bags!

Philadelphia may soon be joining the growing number of cities enacting plastic bag fees to reduce plastic bag use, protect the environment and reduce litter.

On May 1, City Council held a hearing on legislation Councilman Frank DiCicco introduced to reduce waste in Philadelphia by mandating a $.25 fee on plastic shopping bags. The legislation successfully moved out of committee, and will be coming up for a full Council vote soon!

Let Council know you support this legislation by sending them an email.
