Retailers are being asked to inform the drafting of a law on the sale of single-use bags.
The legislation being developed will bring into force a proposition by Deputy Inna Gardiner banning the supply and use of some single-use plastic bags and paper bags by retailers.
It will also provide a minimum cost for reusable plastic 'bags for life'.
Retailers are being asked how the law should be drafted and how its success should be measured. They are also being asked about their communication tools and how much time they would need to implement the changes.
Infrastructure Minister, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said: "The aim of the ban and minimum price is to reduce Jersey’s waste and move behaviour away from single-use, as this supports Jersey’s commitment to working together to address the climate emergency.
"By working with the retail industry, I hope that we can make this a success and help our island be a more sustainable place to live and work."
