LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

While everyday should be a day without a plastic bag, today is that day where we emphasize it. Heal the Bay sponsors the annual event in which free reusable bags are given away to help reduce the more than 6 billion plastic bags used by Los Angeles County residents each year. Eek! That's a horrible fact. Changing the lifestyle is not so hard. In our experience, the most difficult hurdle to overcome was remembering to take the bag with us every time we headed to the store.
