GovLabPHL, an initiative led by the Mayor’s Policy Office, is working with City departments and external research partners to evaluate the success of the plastic bag ban.
This evaluation will examine the impact of the ban on:
- Individuals’ behavior (what bags they use).
- Plastic bag litter and waste in Philadelphia.
Any resulting reports will be provided to the Chief Clerk of Council and posted on a City webpage within two weeks of finalization of the report.
