Plastic grocery bags are used for mere minutes before being discarded. Californians alone use 19 billion plastic bags every, single year. The bags threaten marine animals, never biodegrade, and litter city streets. Fortunately, there is an easy and inexpensive solution to using the all-too-familiar plastic bag -- reusable bags. Recently, Los Angeles County passed a bag ban ordinance restricting single-use, plastic bags in unincorporated L.A. County areas. It's time for the City of Los Angeles to follow suit.
