Do you think the City of L.A. should be a leader on the single-use bag issue instead of the last to the finish line? Do you want to end the scourge of plastic bag pollution in your neighborhood, local city streets and worse of all, on our local beaches? Then join us for a rally at City Hall to urge L.A.'s City Council to finally adopt its long-proposed plastic bag ban.
Please join Heal the Bay and other concerned citizens at Wednesday's City Council meeting, where they will be voting on the ordinance to ban single-use shopping bags.
Your voice will be key in supporting the passage of this ordinance, which will help reduce local trash and marine debris and set a precedent for the statewide ban.
What: Rally to support L.A. City Council’s Bag Ban
When: May 23, 2012 9 a.m. Rally; followed by 10 a.m. City Council Meeting (bring I.D. if you plan to attend the meeting)
Where: John Ferraro Council Chamber, Room 340, City Hall, 200 North Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90012
Who is attending: Concerned citizens, elected officials, environmental champions, business leaders, students and veterans groups
