We want to see your bags!
In an effort to help draw attention to Southampton Town’s recent ban on plastic grocery bags, and East Hampton Town’s planned ban in September, The Press Newsgroup is looking for readers to post photos of themselves carrying reusable shopping bags or totes on social media.
Readers should just take a selfie and post it to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #bagbanselfie, and tag The Press Newsgroup or 27east.com to show support for the new program.
The Press can be found on Facebook as 27east, on Twitter as 27east.com and on Instagram as thepressnewsgroup.
The town prohibited stores and retail establishments from using single-use plastic shopping bags for environmental reasons. The ban took effect on Wednesday, Earth Day.
