I am an ocean enthusiast, avid beach-goer, beginner surfer, scuba diver, and all around nature lover. I hate seeing plastic bags flying across our streets, littering our parks, and ending up in our ocean. Please help me spread this important environmental message!

Ban Plastic Bags in California

Californians use an estimated 12 billion plastic bags a year. Before the L.A. County bag ban took effect in 2011, residents consumed approximately 433 single-use plastic bags each per year. Unfortunately, the immediate convenience of plastic bags comes with long-term economic and environmental costs for all Californians.

California cities and counties have led the charge in banning plastic bags. Now the California legislature has the opportunity to eliminate plastic bag waste statewide by passing AB 298. AB 298 will create a uniform California policy—creating regulatory certainty for businesses and consumers—that phases out single-use plastic bags in supermarkets, retail pharmacies, and convenience stores statewide and encourages consumers to use reusable bags, the most sustainable alternative. AB 298 will significantly reduce plastic bag litter in our communities and on our beaches, save taxpayers money, and promote green jobs.

AB 298 must be voted on and passed by the Senate by August 31, and your Senator needs to hear from YOU. Let your representative know that you’re fed up with plastic bags trashing our communities and beaches, and tired of wasting taxpayer dollars on plastic bag litter cleanup.

Learn more about AB 298 and the true cost of plastic bags
