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 Nov. 18 we proudly celebrate “A Day With a Bag” – a reusable one!Stop by one of these locations for a free reusable bag on Monday Nov. 18 while supplies last. See individual sites for times.
