Plastic bags are history in California

Los Angeles has become the largest U.S. city to pass in the full City Council to ban the use of plastic bags in supermarkets and department stores to reduce the waste generated by the Californian city. The measure, which is not yet completed processing and is awaiting the signature of the mayor, will be implemented gradually between January 1 and July 1, 2014, starting with the largest area shops and ending by the neighborhood stores. Instead of plastic bags, customers can use their own bags or purchase a paper one at a price of 10 cents each. Similar initiatives are being applied in other places in the county of Los Angeles as the city of Santa Monica. (06/19/13)
