Bag the bag?

I first ran into California’s plastic bag bans at a San Jose Wal-Mart last year. Since then, bans took effect in Santa Cruz, impacting our regular grocery trips. But are the bans actually reducing litter? I explore the answer in the Santa Cruz Sentinel  and San Jose Mercury News. The Sentinel version, I might add, ran on page one on Father’s Day.
