HOLLYWOOD HILLS—On Monday, November 18, the
Hollywood/Los Angeles Beautification Team, Heal the Bay and a few other organizations collaborated for the event, “A Day with a Bag.” The event allowed shoppers to pick up a free reusable bag in accordance with the law to rid
Los Angeles of the single-use plastic bags as of January 1, 2014.

Last year’s “A Day With a Bag” event handed out 15,000 reusable bags to shoppers at various locations. According to the Heal the Bay website, there were 8,000 bags available to give out at the 2013 event. The organization has been around since 1985, with a focus on keep
California’s rivers, oceans and beaches clear of pollution.
