Want That in a Bag? It’s Going to Cost You – WSJ.com

“In San Francisco, “we just want to reduce the amount of single-use plastic bags out there,” says Jack Macy, Commercial Zero Waste Coordinator for the San Francisco Department of the Environment. “If a 10-cent fee can serve as a disincentive to consumers who go to the store expecting to get a new set of plastic bags each time, then these rules will be doing their job.”

Restaurants are exempt from the new rules until next year, and noncompliant plastic bags will remain acceptable for certain items, such as bulk candy and deli meats. Food-stamp recipients won’t be charged the 10-cent fee, according to the ordinance.”

The quotation above couches the issue well. I know Jack and worked with him and his team on the development of the collateral for this campaign and can tell you, he’s a helluva good guy. A lot of thought went into this move, and it’s good legislation….
