Jimmy Kimmel Asks: "How can the most plastic city in America turn its back on plastic bags?"

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Jimmy Kimmel used Los Angeles' aggressive new plastic bag ban as fodder for a segment on his show this week. He asked, "How can the most plastic city in America turn its back on plastic bags?"

Kimmel took a couple of shots at Angelenos who tote their pups in their purses (that joke is a little 2005 but we'll let it slide) and Bruce Jenner's face (I guess Michael Jackson passed the bad-surgery baton on to him). If paper or reusable bags aren't your thing, Kimmel has an ad for drawstring pants and Uggs that will help you tote your groceries (and more importantly, your pudding) around town.
