Montreal’s Ban on Plastic Shopping Bags Comes Into Effect

On Jan. 1, Montreal became the first major Canadian city to implement a ban on plastic bags.

The ban covers the distribution of lightweight plastic bags with a thickness of less than 50 microns as well as biodegradable bags, which contain an additive that causes them to decompose in heat and light.

There is an exception for the thin bags that are used in grocery stores to transport fruit and vegetables to the cash register or to wrap up meat.
