  • Our Work Around the Bay


    Save The Bay works with cities and counties around the Bay to protect our waterways from plastic bag pollution. We advocate for strong ordinances that ban plastic bags and place a charge on paper, with the ultimate goal of transitioning consumers to reusable bags. Learn more pending bag bans throughout the region.

  • Facts about plastic bags


    Plastic bags pollute our waters, smother wetlands and entangle and kill animals. In fact, approximately one million plastic bags pollute San Francisco Bay each year. Bay trash flows into the ocean to join the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, where plastic particles are more abundant than plankton. Learn more about plastic bag pollution.
