Star Struck LA City Council Votes against Local Jobs
Hollywood's Julia Louis-Dreyfus wanted a plastic bag ban. The council was concerned about Hollywood jobs...but ignored the pleas of local workers, dismissed their jobs and brushed off dangerous health concerns.
Help us defeat plastic bag bans and taxes across the country.
Plastic bags are chosen by more than 90 percent of consumers at the checkout. About 9 out of every 10 consumers reuse these bags for everyday household purposes.
Plastic bags are 100 percent recyclable. More than 900 million pounds of plastic bags, sacks and wraps were recycled in 2010.
Plastic bag bans and taxes have an impact on more than 30,000 American families who make their living directly from plastic bag manufacturing and recycling, as well as the thousands more who are indirectly employed.
