Marin County, CA Urges Shoppers to Avoid Plastic Bags

Marin Independent Journal 05.15.07Marin_county_bag_ban

In Marin County, California, officials are hoping to erad
icate the use of plastic bags and they want residents to voluntarily change their habits before moving to enact a ban. Supervisor Charles McGlashan said the county needs to educate residents to change their minds about the way they carry their groceries. The County's strategy includes providing education and information, phasing out plastic bags, and encouraging businesses to promote the use of reusable bags. For example, Mill Valley-based Mollie Stone's Markets is planning a giveaway of 10,000 reusable bags at their Greenbrae and Sausalito stores this summer.
