SANTA MONICA (CBS) — Enforcement of a plastic bag ban went into effect Thursday in the city of Santa Monica.

The ban of single-use plastic bags was approved in January.

The law applies to grocery stores, convenience stores, mini-marts, liquor stores, drug stores and pharmacies.

Shoppers who don’t bring their own reusable bags can purchase paper bags for 10 cents each.

The ban is intended to help the environment.
