We are part of the Reusable LA coalition, which has worked closely with council members (including the current Council President Krekorian and former Councilmembers Koretz and O'Farrell) and LASAN on the Comprehensive Plastics Reduction Program, for which a very long draft program environmental impact report (PEIR) was released March 12.

By law there is only a 45-day window for public comments (due April 26), which puts neighborhood councils in a bit of a pickle, so we wanted to give you a heads-up in case you want to weigh in! (And we want you to weigh in, as we anticipate push-back from the plastics industry!)

The related council file is 21-0064

The Reusable LA team is still going through the PEIR, but does support the program and will have a draft/template comment letter ready soon. The LANCSA plans to take a position as well. Stay tuned!
