Reduce Reuse Recycle Go Green With US Town of Hilton Head IslandBeginning November 1, all retailers are prohibited from providing customers with single-use plastic carryout bags. An Ordinance passed by the Hilton Head Island Town Council affects all grocery and convenience stores, restaurants and other retail establishments.

The goal behind the single-use plastic carryout bag law is to improve the Town's environment, our ocean and waterways, and to protect our marine life. Marine birds and sea turtles, for instance, mistake plastic bag pieces as food. Plastics can cause blockages in the animal's digestive tract and subsequently lead to death.
