Get yer reusable bags ready. Long Beach business owners have just been notified by our city of the new Carryout Bag Ordinance. I know it’s not a popular topic for many, but I’m personally a fan. There is just way too much garbage flying around in our streets, sticking to trees and clogging up drains.
We have time. This new ordinance doesn’t go into effect until April 22nd, which is Earth Day. The real question is: Will it be enforced? Only time will tell. Don’t worry, though. You’ll still be able to get your precious petroleum bags from whomever stills offers them. It’s just going to cost you some pennies.
