It's Official: Plastic Bags Banned in California via @ecowatch @SenAlexPadilla @EnvAm @EnvCalifornia

California Gov. Jerry Brown added his signature this morning and made it official: single-use plastic bags are being banned from many of the state’s retail establishments. SB 270, passed by the legislature and sent to Gov. Brown’s desk for final approval in late August, phases out the bags, starting with large grocery stores and pharmacies in July 2015, and in convenience and liquor stores one year later. California is the first state to ban the bags, although many cities across the country have done so. This came despite heavy lobbying and spending from “Big Plastic,” led by out-of-state bag manufacturers.
