July 1st Plastic Bag Ban Enforcement in Hawaii.

On July 1st, Hawaii was the first state banning single use plastic bags from store check outs. Volunteers have been working on it for months, spending hundreds of hours. These efforts got finally rewarded. Or did they?

Most places accepted the new law banning single use plastic bags but some stores, promptly after the ban, introduced thicker plastic bags claiming that they're reusable.

Please do not let any store replace plastic bags handed at check outs by other kinds of plastic bags.

We, the signers of this petition, are demanding that you address the concerns listed above immediately.
