All politics is local. How many times have you heard that? But how can you have a voice in your state government when Sacramento is so far away? How can you have an impact on the rapidly-deteriorating state of our oceans? Besides bringing your own bag and bottle, how can you really help address the problem of plastic debris?
Here’s how to help right now:
Call your State Assemblymember and leave a message with your address, asking him or her to vote YES on SB-568 (Lowenthal) (Styrofoam ban).
And call your State Senator and leave a message with your address, asking him or her to vote YES on AB-298 (Brownley) (plastic bag ban).
STATEWIDE BAN ON STYROFOAM FOOD CONTAINERS

STATEWIDE BAN ON PLASTIC BAGS
Your State Assemblymembers and Senators really do pay attention to your phone calls.
Massive public support has helped us ban the bag in Los Angeles, in Glendale, in Pasadena, in Long Beach, in Manhattan Beach… 100 local jurisdictions have banned the bag in California…
Massive public support has helped us ban the foam in Santa Monica, LA County, West Hollywood, Hermosa Beach… 61 local jurisdictions have banned the foam in California…
Let’s do the whole state and have a massive impact on the health of our oceans.
With your help and positive advocacy on behalf of our oceans, there is always hope!
