Your help is needed to urge the Los Angeles City Council to adopt a ban on single-use shopping bags.
RSVP now to join us Wednesday, May 23 to rally to support the City of Los Angeles as it considers a sweeping ordinance to curb the economic and environmental waste created by paper and plastic bags.
If approved, L.A. will become the biggest municipality in the nation to take action against single-use bags. The comprehensive policy would ban plastic carryout bags and also address paper carryout bags by phasing in a fee and ban. If enacted, L.A.'s ban would be one of the most-far reaching measures in the U.S. and embolden other cities, counties and states to take action.
