Take Action to Reduce Plastic Pollution in California
Thank you to everyone who took action before this year's California Legislative session closed August 30, 2012. Unfortunately, the Legislature failed to act to pass these critical bills, so we will re-engage them next year to continue our fight to reduce disposable plastic use in California. You can still use the action below to remind your representatives this is an important issue to you!
Support a future of clean seas in California for endangered leatherback sea turtles! Two bills advancing in the Legislature would lead to a phasing out of single-use plastic bags in grocery stores (AB-298) and polystyrene foam take-out containers in restaurants (SB-568). Plastic bags and plastic foam pieces are two of the most common litter items found on California’s beaches along the new leatherback critical habitat.
