Sonoma County's Plastic Ban Ban Begins

Single use plastic shopping bags will complete their disappearance from Sonoma County retailers on Monday.

It’s been a gradual transition so many shoppers may not even notice a difference. But for those who do, here’s what to expect.

Henry Mikus, the Sonoma County Waste Management Agency’s Executive Director, says that the biggest benefits from the plastic bag ban are expected to be less trash, in the landfills and the environment, and somewhat decreased use of fossil fuels and release of greenhouse gases. But it is also being embraced by the retail business world.

  One of the objections sometimes raised about reusable bags is concerns about cleanliness and the potential for disease. But Mikus says there really isn’t much behind that.
