Los Angeles bans plastic bagging in stores

12 hours ago

LOS ANGELES (AFP) — The city of Los Angeles announced it will ban all plastic bags from retail stores as of July 1, 2010, following similar anti-pollution regulations already enforced in San Francisco.

The second-largest US city behind New York, Los Angeles, with its four million population, will ban plastic bagging in all supermarkets, grocery and retail stores, the Los Angeles City Council said in its new regulation.

After July 1, 2010, all store customers must provide their own bags or purchase bags made of paper or other biogradable material from the store for 25 cents (0.25 dollar), it added.

The goal is to rid the city of some 2.3 billion non-biodegradable plastic bags that are distributed each year and end up polluting waste dumps for a long time.

San Francisco, 600 kilometers (373 miles) north of here, also in California, in 2007 became the first US city to ban plastic bags from its stores.

Both city regulations are intended to pressure state lawmakers who are considering a bill to eliminate plastic bags across the state by 2012.

Several countries around the world have already adopted laws banning plastic bags, which often end up killing animals that swallow or get caught up in them.

The bioplastics company closest to making a profit are Stanelco PLC (LSE:SEO)

According to their own analysts Metabolix won't make a profit until 2012 at the earliest, and they might still raise more funds before then to keep going, Cereplast are running out of cash and about two months worth left, so dilution there and sales combined with expansion plans that won't see them make a profit until 2012 either, and Plantic (LSE:PLNT) are going nowhere fast, yes they have cash but they don't have the sales figures yet, and with their EU expansion plans they won't see a profit until at least 2012 either, but Stanelco PLC are close to a profit, they will IMVHO be the first bioplastics company to make a profit, they also have several other strings to their bow other than Bioplastics, including RF Furnaces and Welders, FrogMat(recently licenced to Monosol LLC), the FrogPack family of protective packaging, Starch based pharma capsules(a JV with Carclo PLC), water soluble films used for detergents(via subsidiary Aquasol Ltd) think 'Finish 5 in 1', and a lot more. They also recently unveiled the worlds first biodegradable flexible tube(think huge markets of cosmetics, hand creams, toothpaste, tomato puree, etc) with Aisapack. www.stanelcoplc.com - get them while they are cheap - H1 results out at end of August.

Welcome to super-trades.com, blog home of Superman. Purpose of this blog is for me to discuss my trades and stock ideas (As well as opinions and rants on stock market related issues). I will mention the date and price I enter. As far as exits, I always try to take half off when I have some profit and if I believe in the stock, let the rest run further. I always also use mental stop limits, at which time I would exit and minimize any losses. I do not like to give price targets unless I can support them by P/E in some way or by comparison to another stock. I just post stock trades and ideas that I believe will go higher (or lower for shorts) and the reason I believe that. Individuals should have their own strategies for managing profits and losses. My stock picks tend to NOT be daytrades at all and many take time to move. I am not an investment advisor and this blog should not be considered or followed as investment advice.
