LA plastics phase out

The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Wednesday (April 27, 2022) to begin phasing out single-use plastics from city facilities and city-sponsored events.

The city will also continue to take steps toward potentially banning polystyrene products such as Styrofoam.  

“Our future in Los Angeles is plastics-free,” Councilman Mitch O’Farrell said Wednesday.
