Ban Plastic Checkout Bags in Los Angeles

Plastic bags are made from non-renewable resources such as natural gas and oil.  Plastic bags do not biodegrade in our lifetimes and can impact wildlife when littered - in addition being an eyesore, costing taxpayer dollars to pick up, potentially clogging drains and possibly creating mosquito breeding grounds in warmer months.  While plastic bags are recyclable, recent reports show a dismal 5% recycling rate from the 115 billion bags used nationwide.  There is an easy solution in reusable bags - and they are already being made right here in Los Angeles!

For these reasons and more we are calling on the Los Angeles City Council to approve a strong reusable bag ordinance.
