I think this may very well fall into the "informative but useless" category of information as it offers no information about cost avoidance or a comparison to the alternatives.

Well, NTC (not sure about NYState) has recently "outlawed" (but not criminalized) plastic grocery bags -- they're ok for fresh produce and but not other things -- So if you buy 8 bags of potato chips or 8 cans of tunafish or loaves of bread you can't have a bag. If you didn't bring your own bag you can buy one for (usually) $1.
