A woman carries her groceries in a plastic bag while leaving a supermarket in Monterey Park, California on September 30, 2014, where the state's Governor has signed the country's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags from convenience and grocery stores. The ban, scheduled to take effect in July 2015, has led to a national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately saying it will seek a voter referendum to repeal the law.
