LA County’s Board of Supervisors Backs off It’s a Ban Plastic Bags

Hosted by

After the City and County of San Francisco banned plastic shopping bags, LA County Supervisors ordered county lawyers to draw up a similar measure along with four alternatives.  That was nine months ago. Yesterday, the Board took action. A ban will not be adopted unless the use of such bags decreases by itself--30% by 2010 and 65% by 2013.
