The Town of Greenwich has approved a ban that prevents the sale of single plastic bags from grocery stores and other local merchants.  

The Greenwich Time reports the ban does not include plastic bags used for delivery of any merchandise or goods. This includes food delivered to residents’ houses or their place of business.

Local residents will not be taxed to use paper bags at the grocery store.

The RTM approved the ban on Monday night. The ordinance will go into effect within the next six months.

The Connecticut Republican party is challenging the non-partisan status of a grassroots group in Greenwich that was established after Donald Trump was elected president.

Indivisible Greenwich says on its official website that it’s a non-partisan, grassroots group that opposes the Trump administration.
