Bringing your own bag could pay

Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, who spearheaded the movement that made San Francisco the first city to ban plastic bags in large grocery stores and pharmacies, requested on Tuesday that the City Attorney draft legislation that would require retailers to financially reward patrons who opt not to use the bags that businesses provide to carry purchases but instead provide their own.

The request submitted reads: “draft legislation to incentivize retail patron’s use of reusable, self supplied shopping bags by mandating a $.10 rebate from the retailer for each shopping bag utilized by the patron.”
