plastic ban

Sep. 02/12

In the final day of the legislative session on Friday, the State Senate failed to act on AB 298, a bill to ban single-use plastic bags statewide. This bill would have been a major step forward in protecting the Pacific Ocean from plastic pollution, according to Environment California.

“Nothing that we use for a few minutes should pollute the ocean for hundreds of years” said Dan Jacobson, Legislative Director for Environment California. “Californians understand this and are taking action in their communities to protect the Pacific.”
