UCLA faculty experts advisory: L.A. bans plastic bags at supermarkets
By UCLA Newsroom May 23, 2012 Category: Academics & Faculty
The Los Angeles City Council has voted to ban plastic shopping bags at grocery stores and eventually require stores to charge 10 cents per paper bag, a move supported by environmental groups and clean-water advocates. UCLA has an expert.
Mark Gold, an associate director with UCLA's Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and former head of Heal the Bay, is an expert in coastal protection issues and can address the ways in which plastic bags pollute the ocean and harm coastal wildlife.
