Yesterday evening the Ojai City Council adopted a single-use bag ordinance, bringing the total number of CA cities and counties with plastic bag bans to 44. It is the first city in Ventura County with a bag ban.
The ordinance bans plastic bags from all retail stores in the City of Ojai, and grocery stores must charge ten cents per paper bag. The ordinance becomes operative on July 1, 2012.
Congrats to the City of Ojai for its environmental leadership on this issue!
