Originally conceived by the Santa Monica non-profit, Heal the Bay, Day Without A Bag is now in other parts of California.
As the name implies, Day Without A Bag ask people to refuse the single use plastic bag and use reusable bags for shopping. Cities in San Diego County had held the Day Without A Bag for the past two years.
For 2010, it has become a regional event county-wide. According to Jacy Bolden, Regional Coordinator of Day Without A Bag in San Diego County, "This is a grassroots event to educate citizens to adopt more sustainable shopping habits".
Heal the Bay is also holding their annual Day Without A Bag event the same day in L. A. County.
