Ban on disposable plastic and paper bags comes into effect

Ban in effect since May 4

Plastic and paper bags must not be used under the new rules. U.S.-based manufacturers on the East Coast offer compliant bags to retailers and stores

NEW JERSEY, NJ, USA, May 6, 2022 / — A New Jersey law prohibits grocery stores from giving customers single-use paper and plastic bags for all retailers with an exemption for food retailers with less than 2,500 square feet of store space because of the paper bag ban, although they are still prohibited from distributing single-use plastic bags.
Retailers will turn to alternatives such as non-woven polypropylene bags, as well as NWPP bags, canvas bags and heavy plastic reusable bags.

US-based manufacturers like Midvale Paper Box Co. offer these bags at extremely low prices, alongside the fact that most items produced by Midvale are made in the USA by cutting distributors and passing on the same advantage cost to its customers.

Violators of the new rules face a warning first, followed by a $1,000 fine, rising to $5,000 for their third and subsequent violations. NWPP bags are the most environmentally friendly alternatives that are still cost effective and compliant with the new applicable law.

Midvale Paper Box is a direct manufacturer of paper boxes and bags with over 40 years of experience creating and printing custom packaging solutions in the USA. For more information, you can visit
