About Us

Bag the Ban is a project of the American Recyclable Plastic Bag Alliance (ARPBA). The ARPBA represents the U.S. plastic bag manufacturing and recycling industry, which employs thousands of workers in 40 U.S. states.

Bag the Ban was developed in response to proposed laws that would ban or tax plastic grocery and retail bags. The industry is deeply committed to the environment and, as such, does not agree with banning or taxing bags because these policies create negative consequences for the environment and economy.

We believe in a better solution, one that increases the recycling and reuse of grocery and retail bags across the country without banning products or taxing families.

Thank you for visiting Bag the Ban. Please join the effort to prevent bans and taxes on your grocery bags.
