CA Plastic Bag Ban

 

On 1 October 2014 California Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill (SB270) that bans Plastic Bag into law.

According to the law  full-line, self-service retail stores with gross annual sales of two million dollars ($2,000,000) or more that sells a line of dry groceries, canned goods, or nonfood items, and some perishable items or has at least 10,000 square feet of retail space that generates sales and has a pharmacy licensed. Will be prohibited from providing a single-use carry out bag to customers (with certain exceptions).  These stores will have to offer paper bags for a minimum of $0.10.  They cannot offer them for free. 

This will also apply to convenience food stores, foodmarts, or other entity that is engaged in the retail sale of a limited line of goods, generally including milk, bread, soda, and snack foods, and that holds a Type 20 or Type 21 license issued by the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

Also impacted are convenience food stores, foodmarts, or other entity that is engaged in the retail sale of goods intended to be consumed off the premises, and that holds a Type 20 or Type 21 license issued by the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

The law will take effect as of July 1, 2015.
“The bill, on and after July 1, 2016, would additionally impose these prohibitions and requirements on convenience food stores, foodmarts, and entities engaged in the sale of a limited line of goods, or goods intended to be consumed off premises, and that hold a specified license with regard to alcoholic beverages.”

The American Progressive Bag Alliance (APBA) attempted to fight the legislation without much success.  According to Lee Califf, Executive Director of the APBA. “Californians need to know SB 270 isn’t about the environment, it’s about billions of dollars in new revenue for the members of the California Grocers Association. This is purely a cash grab that will hurt working families without any meaningful environmental benefit.”

However, organizations such as the California Grocers Association supported the law.  “History was made today, and our environment and economy will be better for it,” said Ronald Fong, President and CEO, California Grocers Association. “SB 270 will foster innovation, create operational consistency, California green jobs, and protect our precious natural resources.”
