Bloomberg to NYC Stores: Recycle Your Plastic Bags

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg took time out on Wednesday from considering a presidential run to sign a bill that requires large stores to offer plastic bag recycling programs. According to Reuters, the law "requires all stores that occupy at least 5,000 square feet to implement bag recycling programs as well as make recycled bags available."
