Ban The Bag California!

Support a bill to reduce plastic pollution!

The California State Legislature is considering a bill that prohibits grocery stores and large retailers from providing single-use bags to customers beginning January 1, 2015. The ban on single-use bags expands to convenience food stores, foodmarts, and certain other specified stores, on July 1, 2016.

Our California coasts are valuable drivers of a tourism industry worth billions of dollars and thousands of jobs in our state. It is important to have sound policies to keep our beaches clean and maintain healthy ecosystems. In fact, over 50 local jurisdictions in California have already seen the importance of this action and banned plastic bags. Please let your State Senator know you support this legislation and a phasing out of plastic checkout bags statewide!
