Berkeley Municipal Code 11.62 - Plastic Bag Ban
Operation Zero Waste
New Year, New Rules
As of January 2023, the City Of Berkeley has implemented a ban on pre-checkout produce bags - the plastic film bags you find in our produce and bulk areas will be phased out of use. Further, the State Of California has also passed a new ordinance that will take effect in January of 2025 where plastic film bags will be banned throughout the state. The local initiative is part of the City Of Berkeley's goal to become a zero-waste city, and we here at Berkeley Bowl fully support the efforts!
What This Means
For our customers, this means that we will be phasing out the plastic bags you see around the store. In their place, customers will find compostable bags, reusable bags, and other types of reusable containers to hold your items. As always we also welcome your own reusable containers like cloth produce bags, jars, and containers for bulk items.
For our stores, this means we will no longer order plastic film bags for use within areas of the store like produce and bulk. We will be moving to compostable film bags that are approved by our local waste management facility, and we currently offer a variety of reusable options like silicone and cloth bags, glass and metal jars and containers, and we are researching additional options to provide a variety of options for our customers.
The implementation period for the new ordinance began on January 1, 2023. The next major milestone for us will be June 30, 2023, when we will be in compliance, then January 2025 will be the final milestone where the entire state will be subject to the new ordinances.
At Berkeley Bowl, we want to make sure our customers are familiar with the new ordinances and understand how they will impact your shopping visits to our store. The complete text of the new ordinance is available here for anyone wishing to read all that it entails. As always if there are questions we can answer for you, please don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2/15/2022 COVID-19 UPDATE
Beginning February 16th, Alameda County and The City of Berkeley will be lifting the requirement that vaccinated people wear masks in most public indoor spaces https://bit.ly/3oKjWsW.
Berkeley Public Health has advised that continuing to wear a face-covering indoors is still strongly recommended, particularly in crowded places. Businesses will set policies on their own premises.
Here at Berkeley Bowl, we are committed to making decisions and prioritizing the safety of our staff and customers to the best of our abilities. Those familiar with our stores know that at peak times, it can become quite crowded.
At Berkeley Bowl, we recommend the continued use of face masks, but they are no longer a requirement to shop in our stores.
We will continue to monitor advice and safety precautions as they are released from National, State, County, and Local authorities, and will adjust policies accordingly to maintain compliance while ensuring we keep the safety of our customers and staff first priority.
We thank you in advance for your support.
Our bulk section is fully re-opened; customers are able to use clean, reusable produce bags and bulk containers. Please make sure to have your containers weighed in the bulk department before coming to the registers, we will not be able to adjust for container weight at checkout.
Hot soups are back and available at both stores!
Kombucha is back with up to 8 flavors on tap at each store!
Social distancing guidelines are no longer required.
Clean/sanitized reusable bags will be welcomed back inside the store for grocery, produce, and bulk items.
Green As We Can Be
We care about the environment, and we know you do too!
With the implementation of the new plastic film bag ban, we continue to encourage our customers to use their own containers when shopping at Berkeley Bowl.
Reuseable produce bags are available for sale in-store, and we highly recommend the use of your own clean and dry containers for your bulk foods shopping (our bulk department staff on-site will tare your containers for you!)
