Today is California’s Heal the Bay organization’s Day Without a Bag. Even if for only one day a year, take today to refuse all disposable bags. If you need one, use a renewable reusable tote. If you live in Los Angeles County, then consider yourself lucky – today all around the county sponsors are giving away free reusable totes for people interested in greening their lives. Want to know where? Go to this site: www.healthebay.org and look up the disbursement locations. Everyone else, well, I guess you’ll have to campaign your local orgs to run a similar program next year. In the meantime, start by using one less of the average 500+ plastic bags Americans consume each year!
