LA City Council tentatively bans plastic bags

An unidentified woman unloads her groceries packed in plastic bags outside Ralph's supermarket in Monterey Park area of Los Angeles Tuesday, June 18, 2013. Los Angeles City Council is expected to vote Tuesday on whether to ban stores from handing out single-use plastic bags. The law would take effect next year. Supporters say the plastic bags litter cities and beaches and endanger wildlife. Manufacturers say the ban would cost jobs. Los Angeles County and other cities, including San Francisco and Santa Monica, already have bans in place. (AP Photo/Nick Ut)
