    July 14 — Reversing a lower court ruling, the California Supreme Court has upheld a Manhattan Beach ordinance that bans the use of plastic bags by local businesses.

    Save the Plastic Bag Coalition, a group of plastic bag manufacturers and distributors, sued to stop the law from going into effect, saying the Los Angeles area-city did not prepare an environmental impact report before enacting the law.

    The Court of Appeals had sided with the coalition, but the Supreme Court overruled that decision with a July 14 unanimous ruling.

    “Substantial evidence and common sense support the city´s determination that its ordinance would have no significant environmental effect,” Judge Carol Corrigan wrote in the 22-page ruling.

    The law was passed in 2008 to ban the use of point-of-sale plastic carry-out bags.
