NYC may ban detergent packs including Tide PODS in latest ‘green’ crackdown — with fines up to $1,200 for selling them

Quote

New York City could soon ban Tide PODS and other laundry-detergent packs under the latest “green” push from lawmakers.

The “Pods are Plastic Bill,” introduced by City Councilman James Gennaro last week, would make it illegal to sell any pods and laundry sheets if they’re made with polyvinyl alcohol.

Fines for selling the pods would start at $400, double for a second violation and top off at $1,200 for flouting the rules more than twice, if the bill becomes law. The bill would also require education and outreach to businesses on the ban for the first year.

The law wouldn’t take effect until Jan. 1, 2026, if passed.

Is there anything the government won't attack?
