July 3rd is the day you can declare independence from plastic bags!

Before you rejoice that you'll see no plastic bags littering the streets during your next visit to Hollywood or Disneyland, I have to first remind you that Disneyland is in Orange County, not Los Angeles County -- and that even within L.A. County, this plastic bag ban may be a little less dramatic than you were hoping. Why? The Los Angeles County bag ban applies only to unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. That means businesses in most of the incorporated cities -- including the City of Los Angeles itself -- will still be able to give out both plastic and paper bags for free! In addition, smaller stores will have until January 2012 to comply with the ban.
