California Passes Plastic Bag Ban

California Passes Plastic Bag Ban

iStock/Thinkstock(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — California lawmakers are sending Gov. Jerry Brown a bill that would make California the first to impose a statewide ban on single-use plastic grocery bags.
State lawmakers okayed the bill Friday after protections were added for plastic bag manufacturers.
The measure makes plastic bags illegal statewide at grocery stores and large pharmacies. It includes $2 million in loans to help manufacturers shift to producing reusable bags and lets grocers charge $0.10 each for paper and reusable plastic.
