LA’s Plastic Problem

LA has a plastic problem. No, this is not a post about breast implants, nor is it a post about the ever present lack of authenticity in LA.  Our dear city has a lot of plastic bags, bottles, and yes, some discarded breast implants fouling our roads, rivers, ocean, and…well, it’s all over the place and it is not going away. Several organizations are doing a lot to battle this blight and one of them, the Plastic Pollution Coalition, is doing more than a lot. They have a great event coming up at UCLA on 8/22 and a lot of great info on their website:
