House Bill 21-1162 passed in 2021.  The Plastic Pollution Reduction Act    

Beginning January 2023 shops that are not exempted,
must start a 10-cent bag fee on paper and plastic bags


A ban on single-use plastic shopping bags & Styrofoam food containers goes into effect in 2024.  
There will be several exemptions including restaurants and shops with three or fewer locations.

Local governments may enact their own fees sooner and set their own regulations of

plastic and packaging products above and beyond what the state requires.

On July 1, 2021 Denver shoppers at all stores began being charged a 10-cent bag fee

if they didn't bring their own bag with them. 

Wherever you shop, use your own re-usable shopping bag.
 Keep a few handy in your car.
