Seattle becomes first US city to ban #green, brown plastic produce bags:

The Seattle City Council has unanimously approved a plan to ban green and brown plastic produce bags to eliminate composting confusion, according to KUOW.org. Seattle residents have been throwing non-biodegradable green and brown plastic bags in the compost for some time now, assuming that the colors meant the bags were biodegradable. This problem has resulted in gummed-up composting machinery, which has required expensive maintenance. The new ruling will limit grocery stores to offering clear plastic produce bags, or green or brown compostable bags. The plan also makes the five-cent fee for paper bags permanent.
