California’s Plastic Bag Ban

If you are like many other Californians, you are probably still trying to train yourself to bring reusable bags to the store when you get groceries. It has been a bit of a struggle, but admittedly a small one to help the environment.

The state of California recently banned stores from using single use plastic bags in an attempt to reduce the amount of plastic waste the state produces. Stores would still be allowed to offer plastic bags, but they would need to charge a minimum of 10 cents and the bags would need to be reusable.

Some people do not paying the extra 10 cents per bag, while other people hate completely hate the idea of paying for something they used to get for free. Realistically, it is not that big of a deal...
