Eco-Elf Patrol Giveaway Events Continue Throughout Los Angeles County

Los Angeles County Public Works’ Eco-Elf Patrol continues to visit local stores and libraries to hand out free reusable shopping bags to customers.

Shoppers are also reminded of the January 1, 2012, ban on single-use plastic bags and encouraged to bring their reusable bags when they shop to avoid paying 10 cents for a paper bag.

The free giveaway events will continue through December 22. Quantities are limited. Customers are advised to check the store listings to confirm date and time of the events. To learn more about the single-use plastic bag ban and to find the Eco-Elf Patrol visit or follow us on twitter @CleanLA.
