What is A Day With a Bag? A citywide day of education on November 18, readying Thanksgiving shoppers and retailers for the implementation of the City of Los Angeles’ single-use, plastic shopping bag ban that begins on January 1, 2014. After years of hard work, the City is now poised to follow a more sustainable path, where shoppers bring reusable bags to the store as part of their normal daily routine.
For six years, Heal the Bay has organized A Day Without a Bag citywide, encouraging people to skip single-use plastic. But this November 18 we proudly celebrate “A Day With a Bag” – a reusable one! Join us at a press conference on the steps of City Hall at 10 a.m. on November 18. In partnership with the City of Los Angeles' Bureau of Sanitation and many other partners, Heal the Bay will organize the distribution of 8,000 reusable bags across the City in every council district.
