If the first day of the Edmonds’ plastic-bag ban is any indication, the new ordinance is going to take some getting used to — on the part of both shoppers and retailers, according to a report Saturday from My Edmonds News online news partner The Seattle Times.

Edmonds became the first city in the state Friday to institute a ban on single-use plastic shopping bags. Plastic bags are still allowed in the produce and meat sections of grocery stores and for takeout food at restaurants.
