“The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 3 – 1 to approve a sweeping single-use plastic bag ordinance. With this historic and far-reaching decision, L.A. County becomes the largest municipality in the U.S. to adopt a plastic bag ban for its 1.1 million residents.
Currently, six billion single-use plastic bags are used in L.A. County annually. Effective July 1, 2011 – that number will be dramatically reduced saving taxpayers millions of dollars in street, storm drain and beach cleanup costs.”
