Californians use an estimated 19 billion plastic bags per year. Only five percent of these are recycled. Many more find their way to our creeks, Bay and ocean where they entangle, suffocate and kill seals, birds, sea turtles and other marine life.
Please sign the petition today to end the distribution of single-use plastic and paper bags to protect the Bay and its wildlife.Your action will help your community make the switch to reusable grocery bags to keep pervasive bag pollution out of the Bay. It’s easy, but in the U.S., we're out of practice. With smartly crafted policies to discourage bag use, we can kick our bag habits together. Sign the petition today and we'll deliver it to your elected officials to urge them to crack down on single-use bags:
Yes! I want a cleaner, healthier Bay and waterways. I support policies that ban or place a charge on single-use bags to clean up our communities and environment.
