Plastic ban in Santa Cruz: Shoppers resort to wholesale reusable bags

Critics had threatened to file a lawsuit against the plastic ban in Santa Cruz. Board Supervisor, Mark Stone stated that it was time everyone agreed to a country wise ban against plastics in the larger interests of the nation.

The results of the vote was 4- 1. Shoppers who tend to forget bringing their own bags groaned against it, but the ban was nevertheless enforced in March 2012. Save Our Shores, an environmental group predicted a 75 percent decrease in plastic bags on beaches.

Richard Wieckowicz, a resident said that the ban was only likely to cause more environmental hazard by an increase in circulation of paper bags. Plastic bags ban will take effect in all restaurants of Santa Cruzon the Earth Day that is April 22, 2013. The ban will put an end to take-away bags and promote the use of wholesale reusable bags.

Save the Plastic Bag Coalition, a group fighting against the ban of plastics has put a hold on the plastic ban in restaurants. Stephen Joseph, a counsel of the Save the Plastic Bag Coalition confirmed that the group would sign a lawsuit against the ban and stop it from being enforced.

The group asserts that the hazards of plastic over the marine environment are unduly overstated. The same group had prevented the first plastic ban in the country from coming into force.
