Culver City Plastic Bag Ban
Culver City Council is currently considering a carryout bag ordinance that would ban plastic bags and put a ten-cent fee on paper checkout bags at grocery stores and most food retailers. In December 2012 City Council voted 5-0 to draft the bag ordinance language and do environmental review based on the LA County ordinance model. This is a great first step but we need to show community support throughout the process.
