CA May Become First State to Ban Plastic Bags


California may become the first state to ban plastic bags. Earlier this summer, the state assembly passed a bill banning single-use plastic bags. Now it is up to the senate and the governor to make it law. Treehugger reports:

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who in May eliminated offshore drilling in California, supports the bag ban, meaning that if the Senate passes the bill, it would almost definitely be signed into law. That would put California, which currently uses 19 billion plastic bags per year, well ahead of the rest of the country in the effort to go green.

You don't have to wait for your state to pass a law to quit the plastic bag habit. Stock up on Organic Cotton Reusable Shopping Bag (3 Pack) - 100% grown, woven and sewn in the U.S.A.!
