San Jose Does it Right

San Jose banned the bag! Just the latest in a series of local goverments doing the right thing. Locally, Long Beach did it, as did LA County.  All of these local bans on plastic bags are going to help end the blight that litters our streets, beaches and parks, and kills our marine life. But as the San Jose Mercury News points out, a statewide ban would be more effective, easier to implement, and better all around.
