As of August 1st 2014, Ban the Bag is in effect in Rincon Puerto Rico. The details as we know them
- Merchants have 6 months before they will be fined for using plastic bags
- Merchants should sell re-usable bags and/or have paper bags available for 10 cents each
- The ban applies to ALL merchants, big or small
Congrats to Rincon for being the first town in Puerto Rico to ban the bag and bringing an awareness to our beautiful Island. You can follow Reduciendo la Huella Plastica on Facebook for more environmental issues in and around Rincon.
