Montreal will kick off the new year with a plastic bag ban.

The city of 1.7 will ban retailers from using most plastic bags.

There are some exceptions. Fresh vegetables and medication can still use plastic bags.

Montreal is the first major Canadian city to ban single-use plastic bags.

There are 1.4 and 2.7 million shopping bags used in the city every year.

Merchants will have six months to comply.

Some major stores have already complied with the ban.
