No More Plastic Shopping Bags for Rincon!

Proyecto Verde, Rincon, Puerto Rico

Rincon has made it official. Municipal Ordinance 6 prohibits plastic shopping bags. If you read Spanish, you can read the specifics on Ordenza Num. 6 here. Seems like they’re using up the rest of what they have at Econo, but besides that no one is working with plastic shopping bags anymore. At all grocery stores you will have to bring your own reusable bags or pay 15 cents a paper bag.

Rincon is the first and only municipality in Puerto Rico to adopt this ban on the plastic bags and has even made some state-side news reports. If you’re going to visit this season you might want to bring your re-usable grocery bags with you.
