Day Without a Bag: Where to Get a Free Reusable Bag


Join us this Thursday, December 15th in observing A Day Without a Bag. Presented by Heal the Bay, the event encourages shoppers and retailers to forgo single-use, plastic shopping bags in favor of reusable bags.

To raise awareness of this campaign, Heal the Bay will be handing out free reusable bags at over 60 locations throughout Los Angeles County. Click on the map below to see all the locations:
