Heal the Bay’s 4th Annual ‘A Day Without A Bag’

'Day Without a Disposable Bag' will be held this year on December 16th from 5-7 pm in many locations in Southern California. It will bring early holiday presents to shoppers and provide an educational summit for policymakers. Nearly 20,000 reusable bags will be given away at more than 100 locations throughout California. San Diego's 4 hosted sites will be run by volunteers and committee members from the Surfrider Foundation. Our four locations will be in Ocean Beach, Oceanside, Escondido and Cardiff.

This event urges consumers to forego environmentally harmful single-use plastic or paper grocery bags in favor of reusable bags that will be handed out by the thousands during these two hours.
