California has banned disposable plastic bags, straws could be next on the list

California has a reputation as a green state on the cutting-edge of environmental laws. State Bill 270 banned the use of disposable plastic bags, changing the way Californians shop, and disposable straws could be next on the chopping block.

The Berkeley City Council has launched an initiative to ban the use of plastic straws in commercial establishments in their city. The ban was proposed by council members Ben Bartlett, Susan Wengraf and Sophie Hahn.
