    Make sure you have your reusable bags if you head to the store.

    Beginning today, Connecticut retailers will tack on 10 cents for each "single-use" plastic bag.

    The state expects to generate more than $27 million within the first year.

    Single-use plastic bags will be phased out entirely by July 2021.

    More than dozen communities in our state have already banned them.
