Jersey Cape Capitalizing on Bag Ban to Help Individuals of All Abilities

Jersey Cape Diagnostic, Training, and Opportunity Center, Inc. (“Jersey Cape”), a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit corporation that assists individuals of all abilities in acquiring job skills and employment in the Jersey Cape region, has announced that it is capitalizing on New Jersey’s new bag laws to help individuals of all abilities.

As an employment training center, Jersey Cape provides a work training environment that mirrors the career opportunities of our community and serves as an intermediate step towards helping individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities secure their ideal employment outcomes. Since 1973, this has included the assembly of most of the Jersey Shore’s beach tags/badges. As Jersey Cape has grown, this has expanded into more job training opportunities such as promotional products and business services. One promotional product type that we can offer is customizable bags, specifically paper bags and reusable bags.

Starting May 4th, 2022, New Jersey retail stores, grocery stores, and food service businesses may not provide or sell single-use plastic carryout bags. Single-use paper carryout bags are allowed to be provided or sold, except by grocery stores equal to or larger than 2,500 square feet, which may only provide or sell reusable carryout bags. To capitalize on this challenge for many businesses in organizations in New Jersey, we are heavily promoting the fact that we can offer paper bags and reusable bags of all kinds that are customizable with your logo or custom design.

Jersey Cape is excited to offer a wide variety of options of bags that are allowed under New Jersey’s new laws. This includes product materials such as polypropylene, PET, RPET, polyester, cotton, nylon, cloth, hemp, and paper. Bags are fully customizable with your logo, design, or messaging. We also offer free design services through our own on staff Graphic Designer.

Jersey Cape has created a dedicated page on our website at as a good starting point for those interested in more information. From there, potential customers can browse bag options and request more information on individual products. Potential customers can also contact our Business Development Director, Holly Wilson, to learn more and get an order started.

“We are excited to offer customizable solutions for the new bag laws that also help individuals of all abilities,” said Joe Sittineri, Executive Director of Jersey Cape. “We thank our current customers for helping those most at-risk in our community and welcome new customers to jump on board as well.”
