The way we grocery shop will change in the next couple years with a bill that recently passed in California. Starting January 1, 2025 you will not be able to use the single-use produce bags that you see in stores currently. Instead, stores are required to provide bags that are: reusable, compostable, or paper.
The plastic produce bags are not recyclable, they’re weak and tear apart and not to mention… they pollute the planet. That’s why in a matter of years they won’t be allowed in California.
For Jennifer Duval and her husband Farzan Dehmoubed, this is the policy change they’ve been waiting for because they’ve been trying to get rid of their own plastic produce bag problem. Dehmoubed says, “We wanted to solve our own plastic waste problems. We had all this plastic waste in our cupboards and pantry.”
