BOSTON — Boston’s City Council on Wednesday voted to approve a plan to reduce the use of single-use plastic shopping bags at stores, restaurants and pharmacies throughout the city.The plan still requires the mayor's signature. If he signs the ordinance, it would go into effect within one year. An aide said Mayor Marty Walsh is reviewing the ordinance, but he has not yet made a decision.

Permitted bags would include reusable bags, recyclable paper bags or compostable plastic bags. (read more)
