Paper or plastic? Oh, and 25 cents please!

Posted by: Nichola Groom

California, always seeking to be a trendsetter on environmental policy, is weighing a proposal to charge 25 cents for every paper or plastic bag distributed at grocery stores, pharmacies and convenience stores. The money raised would go into a state fund used to clean up trash and prevent litter related to what the bill calls “single-use” bags.

This is great news. California rocks! The 25¢ surcharge would help me remember to stash my reusable bags in the car.
