I have two heavy canvas bags that I bought from Trader Joe's in 2005. They're old enough that now the cashiers there comment on my "vintage" bags.

California's bag ban, however, seems to have so many exemptions that I wonder if it makes much of a difference. They're gone from grocery stores and big box stores, but if I get take-out from a restaurant it still usually comes in a plastic bag. When I go to the hardware store, including big warehouse style ones like Lowe's, they still provide disposable plastic bags. I imagine grocery and big box stores constitute the majority of most people's shopping, so it probably greatly reduced their use, but they're far from gone.
