"Pasadena's Green City Action Plan, adopted in 2006, calls for the creation of a plastic bag reduction program to support the goal of achieving zero waste to landfills by 2040," reports the Pasadena Star News. Today, the city's Environmental Advisory Commission's Waste Reduction, Transportation and Environmental Health Committee will meet and invites the public to attend and give comment. In regards to other cities, Santa Monica is still considering restrictions while Malibu, Manhattan Beach and Los Angeles have already passed resolutions to reduce plastic bags.
