Plastic Grocery Ban Now Impacts 300 Stores

Now is the time to bring your own grocery bag to almost every retail merchant in Encinitas.

Encinitas’s ban on single-use, disposable plastic bags is now in effect – which prohibited stores that sell groceries from distributing the bags at checkout counters.

This ‘phase two’ ban impacts almost every retailer, including: clothing stores, hardware centers, pet supply stores and even local farmers markets.

It more than doubles the number of stores affected by the law, from 140 covered under the first phase to about 300 now.

The new law also allows Encinitasmerchants to charge a $0.10 fee per bag if the customer doesn’t a reusable bag and wants a store-provided paper bag.

Plastic Grocery Bag Exceptions

Restaurants aren’t included in the ban, and it doesn’t apply to the plastic bags used in a grocery store’s produce or meat departments.
