SF Close To Banning Plastic Bags
San Francisco is close to passing a law that would require supermarkets and large drug stores to offer customers only bags made of recyclable paper, plastic that can be turned into compost or sturdy cloth or plastic that can be reused, AP reports.
AÃ‚Â legislative committee indicated it was likely to endorse the measure, which would make San Francisco the first U.S. city to ban plastic grocery bags.
The three-member committee of the city Board of Supervisors was forced to postpone voting when two members amended it to apply to pharmacies with five or more retail stores in addition to grocery stores.
