News to Use ❤ LA bans plastic bags

Bye bye plastic bags!  LA is the latest city to get rid of plastic bags.  I don't have an issue with being more green, BUT it bugs me that consumers are going to have to pay more. (And I don't even live in LA... maybe someday :)  The measure will impose a 10 cent charge on paper bags one year after the plastic ban goes into effect.  So basically consumers are the ones getting screwed.  One day you get bags to carry your purchases in (yes, you are already spending money) and the next day you have to pay for a bag to carry the purchase you are already making.  :( SAD face.  Why can't plastic bags be banned without making shoppers foot the bill?  (I mean we already help the economy out...)
