BagBanLogoWEB Single Bag Ban ENFORCEMENT coming soon   Will it be Martial Law in Santa Monica?Santa Monica City Council unanimously passed a new law to prohibit single use plastic and paper bags in Santa Monica on February 8, 2011. I think it’s a pretty good idea and now, they’re planning on ENFORCING the law starting September 1, 2011. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been bringing my bags to the grocery store for years now just because I hate seeing a pile of plastic bags in the closet at home and let’s face it, its good for the environment.

It get’s me thinking, how do you think the City of Santa Monica will enforce the ban? Penalties for stores? Fines for customers who don’t bring their canvas bags? Will it be like a Costco style, put your stuff in the cart and figure it out at the car, or use a cardboard box? Will citizens just freak out completely and the City declares Martial Law until the city is at peace?
