China has announced a ban on plastic shopping bags.

The interesting bit here is:

"China's State Council said the ban will start June 1. Firms that continue to sell, make and distribute bags thicker than 0.025 mm thick will be given fines and authorities may seize goods and profits, the State Council said."

I suspect that many of the plastic bags we get from stores here in North America are manufactured in China.  Will this move be the trigger for stores to stop offering plastic bags?
