California Plastic Bag Ban (US – California)

First U.S. statewide ban on single-use plastic bags – California’s Senate Bill 270 entered into law on 30 September 2014.

California Senate Bill 270 is found here.

This legislation prohibits large grocery stores from carrying single-use bags starting in July 2015, expanding to smaller stores the year after. It also allows businesses to charge 10-cent fees to provide customers with reusable or paper bags.

More than 100 cities and counties, including San Francisco and Los Angeles, already have their own plastic bag bans.
