Over 150 cities have already instated city-wide bans on plastic bags. The most progressive state of all is the traditionally environmentally-conscious California. While a large number of cities and counties in California already have plastic bag bans, they are about to take it a step further: a state-wide ban on non-biodegradable plastic bags. Governor Jerry Brown is set to sign legislation banning non-biodegradable plastic bags in the state of California. This law would be the first of it’s kind in the U.S. The California Senate voted 22-15 for the bill, which must be signed into law by September 30.
At Mixed Bag Designs, we know how important it is to help our world “go green” in all sorts of ways, and bringing reusable bags to the store instead of using single-use plastic is one of them. We are proud to be a part of a growing movement to B.Y.O.B. (bring your own bag). We hope Jerry Brown feels the same way!
