The Oregon Legislature couldn't do it, but the City of Portland has approved a plastic bag ban that takes effect October 15th.  The new ordinance will make it illegal for stores with more than $2-million in annual sales, or stores larger than 10,000 square feet to offer single use bags to their customers. Lisa Sedlar, President of New Seasons Markets, says many of their customers already use reusable bags.  Far West Fibers, a waste management and recycling company doesn't normally support bans, but testified in favor of the plan, saying the bags jam their equipment costing them millions of dollars in maintenance.
