California to be first US state to ban plastic bags

Customers of Ralphs supermarket use plastic bags to carry their groceries back home, in Glendale, California, on October 25, 2011California governor Jerry Brown said he will approve a ban on single-use plastic bags, in what would make the western US state the first to outlaw them. “I probably will sign it, yes,” Democratic veteran Brown said late Thursday during a televised debate with his Republican election rival Neel Kashkari, who is trailing badly in opinion polls. “In fact, I’ll tell you why I’m going to sign it: there are about 50 cities with their own plastic bag ban, and that’s causing a lot of confusion,” he said, cited by the Los Angeles Times and other media. Under the Californian legislation, single-use plastic bags would disappear from grocery stores and pharmacies from July 1, 2015, and then from convenience and liquor stores from July 1, 2016.
