Take that, bag tax!
Local Girl Scouts will be distributing free, reusable grocery bags at seven Giant supermarkets in the District on New Year’s Day -- the same day D.C. will begin charging a tax on paper and plastic bags to support the new Anacostia River Protection Fund.
City businesses that sell food or alcohol are required to charge five cents for every paper or plastic bag used by a customer.
