Get ready to say good bye to plastic produce bags because they soon be gone at grocery stores in California. A new bill, SB 1046 was signed into law by the Governor. The bags that are not just for produce but also for unwrapped food items like meat, fish, nuts, grains, candy and bakery goods!
So what will replace it? They will be replaced with paper pags or compostable bags according to the bill. But it will take some time to start - the ban will take effect starting January 1, 2025.
