Earlier this week, The California Assembly received full support from the California Grocers Association to pass Bill AB 1998, which if approved by the Senate on Friday, June 4, 2010, would ban all single use plastic and paper carry out bags from supermarkets, retailers, convenience stores, food marts and liquor stores. The ban would require grocers and retailers to replace plastic and most paper bags with reusable bags, such as jute bags or sell paper bags with at least 40 percent recycled content.
