I live in San Luis Obispo County a predominantly tourist area, this law took effect in SLO on October 2012.It is a pain, see they still use durable plastic bags but charge you for them.Here's the real kicker the bags that are sold are made in China not U.S.A.The resident's are now paying for their plastic/paper bags that was once free.The store doesn't get any of this fee, it goes to County Supervisors.It feels like a tax fee,tourist do not understand and go 30 minutes to Santa Maria, which is in Santa Barbara County and they get free bags there.I keep forgetting my bags so i always end up paying for them.
Tired of Agenda 21 law pushers we need to get them out of our Counties and follow the other States that kicked the ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives)out.

Well said, it's like most of the clean air projects, follow the money and it always leads to the pockets of politicians.

I want to say thank you thank you thank you to drudenaku for everything so far. To everyone who
doesn’t believe in spell, I was one of those ones at
first. I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to do this since
I’ve tried others so-called spells casters and they did
not work and was a waste of my time and money.
However, when I read through the testimonials of
other people at this website and after I talked drudenaku who answered all my questions and was
very nice about everything, I decided to give it a try.
I figured it would be my last try to get my guy back.
So my story is that I was at my office when the guy I
am in love with told me that he wasn’t in love with
me and never will be and that he didn’t want to
speak or see me again, especially since he was
talking to this other girl. When I talked to
[email protected] he let me know which
spells would be most appropriate for me and I chose
the ones that was to get him back to me and stay
with me and want to marry me.As soon as he
started on the spells, my guy came back into my
life! It was a miracle to me and I’m so thankful for
that. Things have been going well, and pretty much
according to what Drudenaku said would happen.
He’s always there when you need him and that’s
also after the spell is done. I’m still waiting for the
spells to completely manifest, but with all that has
happened so far I’m very happy because given only
four months ago in March, if you asked me or my
friends if I would have anticipated how things were
right now…no one would believe it! Udenaku. contact is
email address [email protected] or contact on +2348162558115

The banning of single use paper bags from being given out for free is a definitely a step in the right direction. Plastic bags are given out too freely now, with cashiers putting every thing in a bag, even single items like an apple or a banana. Given that it is assumed that most people use over 130 bags each year, it is essential that everyone starts making changes to be more environmentally conscious. The majority of the plastic bags used are not even recycled and instead sent to landfills, or worse, they wind up on beaches, roads, and sidewalks. Not to mention the thousands of blastic bags flouting in the ocean and consequentially effecting marine life.This new law is going is the first step in making California and plastic-bag-free state.
RECYCLING is up 2 the individual 2 be earth conscience! Do u honestly think that banning plastic bags will even make a difference? When every Manufacturer is guilty of "OVERPACKAGING" everything. Observe, how many times do u buy a box, & have 2 open the bag inside? Then what about the prices of the earth friendly bags? Absolutely outrageous ! Also if u walk out without a bag, every single person wud look suspicious of theft. With all the technology offered 2 us, I believe we are capable of ANYTHING as a COUNTRY, but 1st understand, it takes a village 2 care enough about life & preserving our natural resources. Too many mean ppl in this world who don't care about themselves much less others or the environment. There r ways I'm sure we cud figure it out! Together.Ppl sadly don't care these days, 2 make a difference. Eg: Our Country's freedoms & right 2 vote 2 make a difference is ignored by too many citizens. Obama gets elected for 2 terms, & The the majority of the country, "betray & abandon Our Leader & Our Country"

Just go on ebay and buy your own plastic bags like the stores used to ofeer, they are something like $7 for 1000. The law only says the stores cant offer them, nothing wrong with bringing your own...then after using them for groceries,i use them for the dogs crap. Screw the Libs...
