Plastic Bag Ban

Our Legislature passed a law prohibiting all stores from supplying petroleum-based plastic bags to consumers and customers in American Samoa. The American Samoa Environmental Protection Agency (AS-EPA) along with the Department of Commerce (DOC) and the Department of Public Safety (DPS) are designated and authorized to enforce the provisions of this law on its effective date.

The plastic shopping bag ban will be effective February 23, 2011. Supplying petroleum-based plastic shopping bags to consumers and customers will be prohibited February 23, 2011.
