Take action and contact the Ventura City Council to let them know you support a citywide Reusable Bag Ordinance for grocery stores and food retailers. We need your support as this issue could go to the full City Council for a series of votes in 2013.
Plastic checkout bags are typically made from non-renewable resources such as natural gas. Plastic bags do not biodegrade in our lifetimes and can impact wildlife when littered - in addition to being an eyesore, costing taxpayer dollars to pick up, potentially clogging drains and possibly creating mosquito breeding grounds in warmer months. While plastic bags are recyclable, recent reports show a dismal 5% recycling rate from the 115 billion bags used nationwide.
We need you to show support for a plastic bag ban by signing this Action Alert to contact City Councilmembers, attending local hearings and spreading the word with friends. Click Here for more campaign info and Bring Your Own Bag Ventura!
