Skip to comments.NYC may ban detergent pods, some laundry sheets in latest ‘green’ crackdown — with fines up to $1,200 for selling them

New York City could soon ban detergent pods across the five boroughs in 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.

Green is a Stinky Scam
If migrants throw them at police, we have our dystopian paradise.
Out of contro9l government revels in being out of control.
Seriously — it sends a tingle up their legs.
Well, the good news is, this may save a few Gen Z idiots’ lives, if they are unable to participate in the “Tide Pod Challenge.”
I weep for America. We are going to have to go through a HUGE process of correction and restoration. It’s going to be bloody and awful before we reclaim our freedom and our Republic.
Glad to see NYC has solved all their problems so they can focus on this.
Some swarthy guy with scraggly hair in Times Square can open his raincoat and offer an array of illegal detergent pods.
Apparently politicians have officially run out of real problems to address, so they make $&!T up.
Less soap. That’s exactly what NYC needs. Finally some common sense government.
I think I’m going to become a laundry detergent pod and fabric softener dealer.
You’ll drive up and ask, and I’ll go back to my hidden stache to get you some.
$20 for 5 pods, $10 for 5 sheets.
I’ll hand it to you discreetly in a black plastic shopping bag.
You never know. It’s New York. That’s a place where they kill folks for selling loosies, so you need to be careful!
Our control freaks don’t give up, because they can’t. Our society breeds more than enough jealousy and contempt.
What is wrong with pods? They are much more efficient, I love them as I don’t have error or mess on pouring detergent for wash.
So it’s better for the environment to use big trucks to haul around 15 pound plastic jugs of diluted liquid detergent? Does anyone recycle those jugs knowing the chemicals going to recyclers or landfills? Isn’t a cardboard box of concentrated pods or powder likely better, all things considered, for the environment? Less carbon footprint, easier to recycle cardboard?
OK that’s it...this is over the line.....I’m outta here ! s/ (don’t live there).....
Time to get some high capacity Tide Pod magazines for my assault tide pod dispenser.
RE: reclaiming our Republic....
One glimmer of hope I have is that common people casually expect freedom and independence even if they vote Dem. They don’t like it being taken away.
During the 1967 Detroit Riots a friend of my mother was used to crossing from the suburbs onto the Detroit side of the boulevard Eight Mile Road to go to a liquor store and then turn around to go back. Cops stopped him. He said “I’m just going here and then going back to the other side after I buy some stuff at this store.” They harshly told him to get out now. “Hey, fellas, I’m not a rioter. I’m just a regular guy.” He smiled. Two more police came over and pointed weapons in his face and didn’t return his smile. He left, shaking.
“They knew I’m not a threat to anybody. I’m just a normal person, not a rioter.”
After that he was resentful of police authority.
MY liquid laundry soap still comes in a large plastic jug.
So they dissolve in the wash and avoid large plastic containers of liquid that go into recycling landfills. What’s the problem?
when detergent pods are outlawed, only outlaws will have detergent pods ...
Sorry, assault on rocks is also punishable by 30 days in jail.
