From #WashTimes' Jeff Mordock: San Francisco has reversed its 13-year ban on plastic bags and will now prohibit the reusable bags city leaders once championed because of the coronavirus. ➤Tap the link in our bio to read more The liberal city announced the switch this week as part of its plan to curb the spread of coronavirus. Barring customers from bringing reusable bags, mugs and other household items into stores was adopted as a measure “to prevent unnecessary contact” among the public. San Francisco is not the only place that has reversed its reusable bag policy, but it is certainly the most surprising. The city was at the forefront of eliminating single-use plastic bags in 2007. At that time, San Francisco’s board of supervisors linked plastic bags to a litany of scourges, including litter, global warming, big oil and endangering sea life. But the coronavirus has changed all that. As of Thursday afternoon, California was one of the states most ravaged by the virus reporting 10,000 cases and 200 deaths. #sanfran #california #sanfrancisco #recycle #green #news #realnews #reusable #plastic #recycleplastic #covid19 #covid #coronavirus #stayhome #stayhealthy #socialdistancing
