LA bans use of plastic bags at stores

Los Angeles city council members voted overwhelmingly to ban plastic bags.

The plan will phase out the bags at large stores within six months and smaller stores within a year.

There will also be a 10 cent surcharge on paper bags.

Supporters say this change will be good for the planet.
