October 2015
The Arizona Legislature won't let local governments ban plastic grocery bags. But it can't stop grocery stores from acting on their own. 
Some Arizona municipalities tried to ban plastic bags in the past, but in 2015, the Legislature prohibited local bans. This means, for now, it's up to us to persuade businesses to move Arizona away from single-use plastic bags.
