Los Angeles is going green in 2014!
The city’s plastic shopping bag ban went into effect on New Year’s Day. Customers at large grocery stores will be forced to bring their own reusable bags or pay 10 cents per paper bag.
As of July 1, smaller independent stores will also be subject to the new law. But while the policy is good for the environment, some locals are making a stink - specifically, they’re concerned about how they’ll pick up after their dogs without plastic bags.
