TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) — New Jersey is the newest battleground in the war against plastic pollution.
The state is considering whether to adopt the strictest plastic ban in the nation.
A proposed bill would outlaw non-recyclable plastic shopping bags, plastic straws and Styrofoam food containers.
Last year, more than 30 bills were introduced in nine states to reduce disposable plastics.
