  • Latest Developments in California Bag Ban

    The entire journey to ban single-use plastic bags in California has been epic – there have been ups and downs and it almost seemed like when Governor Jerry Brown signed SB270 into law on September 30, 2014 that the trek was going to end on a high note and disposable plastic bags would quickly become a relic of the past. Turns out that was wishful thinking and the journey is going to be a little longer, but we’re still optimistic single-use plastic bags will ultimately be banned at the state level.

  • Montreal Mayor Proposes Bag Ban

    Mayor Denis Coderre recently approached the City Council with a proposal to ban single-use plastic bags in retail stores throughout Montreal. "Personally, I think we should ban them," Coderre said. "But we have to consult properly so that all players in society can contribute fully." This notion of a bag ban was spurred by California’s recent state-wide ban, although Montreal has proven to be very environmentally minded. Even NYC is getting in on the bag ban wagon.
  • California Bans The Bag But What State Will Be Next?

    It is really great news for the environment that California passed a statewide single-use plastic bag ban and we’re still so excited. This is such a big step and will have a massive impact (for the better!) on the environment. California Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 270 but California is facing some opposition. Still, as of right now, the ban is set to go into effect starting next July, but there are some disposable plastic bag manufacturers looking to repeal this law. We are optimistic that the California bag ban will hold up and we’re also interested to see who follows California’s lead and that got us thinking about which state could be next to enact a disposable plastic bag ban.
