Ojai Plastic Bag Ban
The Ojai City Council passed a final reading of a carryout bag ordinance on April 10th 2012 that bans plastic checkout bags at all retailers and place a ten cent fee on paper bags at most stores as an incentive for people to remember their reusable bags. Ojai is a leader in California by being the first city in Ventura County to ban plastic bags. Congrats to the chapter activists and the Ojai Valley Green Coalition for their efforts.
