Ask First BYOB

The Princeton Merchants Association (PMA), in collaboration with local merchants, nonprofits and the Municipality of Princeton, promotes a single use plastic bag reduction initiative for the community. The initiative pushes for the reduction, reuse and recycling of single use plastic bags. Merchants are encouraged to “Ask First” if customers need a bag, nudge residents to “Bring Your Own Bag” (BYOB) and use bins throughout town and at home for our residents and businesses to “Collect and Recycle” plastic bags.

Spearheaded by PMA, lead participating members include McCaffrey’s Food Market, the Princeton University Store, the Whole Earth Center, Craft Cleaners, Sustainable Princeton, the Princeton Senior Resource Center and the Municipality of Princeton.
