The Culver City City Council is inviting the community to participate in a discussion about the use of single use carryout bags.
The meeting will take place on Mon. Dec. 10 at City Hall at 7 p.m. in council chambers. During the meeting, the City Council will be asked to provide direction to staff regarding restricting or otherwise discouraging the distribution of single use bags. The City Council will also be asked to provide direction regarding the public outreach process and the potential preparation of an ordinance for future City Council consideration and related environmental documents.
Los Angeles City, Los Angeles County and the City of Santa Monica have already passed legislation relating to the use of single carryout bags and several Culver City organizations and residents are advocating for a complete plastic bag ban in Culver City.
Among them are Heal the Bay and Ballona Creek Renaissance, which are pushing for a ban to help reduce the damaging impact of unnecessary plastic.
