NEW SUFFOLK COUNTY BAG LAW.
LOONEY TUNES TAKES A NEGATIVE
AND TURNS IT INTO A POSITIVE.
SEE WHAT LOONEY TUNES IS DOING…
Dear Looney Tunes Customers,
As of January 1st 2018, in accordance with Suffolk County law, Looney Tunes (and ALL Suffolk County Stores) will be forced to charge 5¢ for each carryout bag. Please understand that this is NOT our policy, it is a new Suffolk County Law. Any store not in compliance is subject to a $500 fine for the first offense and a much larger fine for subsequent offenses.
OK, so what is Looney Tunes going to do….
First and foremost, we agree with the idea that we should all be encouraging each other to recycle more plastic and paper goods. Taking care of each other and our planet is something we at Looney Tunes strongly encourage and are happy to get behind and support. What we do not want to do is inconvenience or penalize our customers in any way. With the growth of online marketplaces, it is becoming harder and harder each day for mom and pop retailers in Suffolk County to survive. The new law, which again I believe was created with the best of intentions, I feel is going to further discourage customers from shopping brick and mortar locations. Instead of penalizing normal customers, let’s REWARD customers who use reusable bags.
So this is what Looney Tunes is going to do….
- If you want a regular bag we will have to charge you 5¢ per bag. However, one of the items you purchase will be discounted by 5¢. In essence you will be paying the same amount you normally would have paid.
- If you bring in your own reusable bag, we will reward you by discounting your purchase by 25¢.
We all have to do our part in protecting our environment. In addition, Looney Tunes will be making yearly donations to environmental charities such as, but not limited to
1) Ocean Conservancy
2) Rainforest Alliance
3) Friends Of The Earth
We thank you, our loyal customers, for your continued support of Looney Tunes.
