So happy about the single use plastic bag ban Stafford Township, New Jersey has enacted. Not only has the science and research shown how destructive they are, I have seen it with my own eyes. I have ...been using canvas and recycled plastic tote bags for over 10 years now. They are so much stronger and more convenient, I would never use a plastic bag over them given the choice.

Aside from the damage that plastic bags have on ocean health, the environment and wildlife let's think about great using the canvas/recycled shopping bags are: 1. They hold so much more, easier on the hands.
2.Never break (I have had the same 7 bags for 8 years!
3.Some are insulated for your cold items.

Change can be difficult, or you can embrace it and make it work for you. I promise you, once you get a great bag, you will never miss the plastic ones.

Lived here for over 20 years and love it! It's close to the beach and there's plenty to do. It has a great school system, and the township is well run. Would still live in Stafford Township, if I could.

Beautiful place to live and raise a family. Have been here for over 38 years. Have seen many changes some good and some not so good, but that is life. Having the best beach just across the bridge is... wonderful . See More

Governor Christie declared a state of emergency for several NJ Counties, including Ocean. All state, county and Stafford Twp offices are closed for non-essentia...l personnel. Please keep the roadways clear so as to allow plows to do their jobs more effectively, not mention it’s downright treacherous out there! It’s a good day for hot cocoa, comfort food and some TV! #bingewatching #bombcyclone #wthisabombcycloneanyway #stateofemergency #babyitscoldoutside
