Plastic bag makers were granted an injunction on Thursday putting a halt to a proposed ban on bags in Oakland, Calif., according to this story from the San Francisco Chronicle. "We feel vindicated," Michael Mills, attorney for the Coalition to Support Plastic Bag Recycling, told the newspaper. The next step? The city will decide whether to challenge the ruling, to drop the ban, or whether to go ahead with an environmental impact study of the proposal. Watch Plastics News' Web site for more information on the ruling, and reaction from all sides, later in the week.
