Santa Monica Bans Plastic Bags at Farmers Markets

Should All Farmers Markets Ban Plastic Bags?

Last week, the Santa Monica City Council approved an ordinance that prohibits the distribution of plastic carrying bags (the flimsy, translucent kind with handles) in most places, including farmers markets. The city hopes that the new ordinance will encourage people to make purchases with canvas totes, saved plastic bags, and other reusable carriers. Although the city will initially offer a "share a bag" program for farmers market shoppers, eventually, those who forget to bring theirs will have no choice but to buy a reusable bag on site. What do you think of this idea: is it progressive, or unrealistic? Let's hear what you think.
