Document Description
The City of Santa Monica proposes to adopt a Single-use Carryout Bag Ordinance that would: 1) prohibit all retail establishments (except restaurants) in Santa Monica from providing "single-use plastic carryout bags" to customers at the point of sale; and 2) create a Green Fee for each paper bag distributed by grocery stores, convenience stores and pharmacies in the City. Restaurants are the only retail establishment that would be exempt from the single-use plastic bag ban, allowing them to provide plastic bags for take-out food.
