The Long Beach checkout bag law takes effect in just 3 weeks!! We are preparing for the festivities around it. If you would like to join our team for the parade and the art build with our allies, please RSVP Here.
Our volunteer team has been going door to door to merchants to help them with the transition to reusable bags, partner with them for any questions and concerns they still have, and find solutions for bag giveaways. Susan and Joanne are pictured with Natalie Dangerfield (center), owner of Random LB. Also helping have been Jo, Karin, Karen, and Stacy. Thanks for your work to get this done!
Though we’re making progress, there just aren’t enough machine washable, grocery size, reusable bags coming available right now to make sure Long Beach smoothly transitions, and we need to make sure there are.
Join our crowdfund in partnership with Georgia Meckes and LI Greenmarket and help us get 1 million bags off the streets.
