The Los Angeles City Council has discovered a new enemy in their fight to save the environment from so-called global warming --- plastic grocery bags.
Our nation's second biggest city will ban plastic bags on July 1, 2010. After that -- you've gotta bring our own bag or buy one made from biodegradable garbage.
The anti-pollution police argue that tiny forest animals might get caught inside the plastic bags --- and may die.
San Francisco became the first American city to institute the ban in 2007 and if some lawmakers have their way -- the entire state will bag plastic bags by the year 2012.
