New York is the third state in the U.S. to ban retailers from offering single-use plastic bags, following California and Hawaii. It is up to individual counties to decide whether to impose a 5-cent fee on paper bags, 40 percent of which goes towards buying reusable bags for low-income consumers.

Each Scrap Supper menu is inspired by seasonal, local produce. Specifically seasonal compost-bound bins at the farmer’s market.

That is to say I have always been up for the hard work that comes with creating change.
