May 20 - Sunday NY Times: Should America Bag the Plastic Bag?

Take Action Today!

The tide is turning. Sunday’s New York Times article, (Should America Bag the Plastic Bag?) demonstrates that people and communities around the world are waking up to the need to phase out single-use plastic bags and their harmful impacts.

The next two weeks are crucial for California; we’re fast approaching a ‘live or die’ vote in the State Senate on SB 405 (Padilla).

The plastics industry continues to air radio and TV ads across the state—spreading misinformation. We need your help to stop them!

Three urgent actions you can take today to help ban plastic bags:

1) Sign our Petition in support of Senate Bill 405;
2) Make a special contribution to support our campaign;
3) Forward this message to 5 Friends or post on Facebook.


We need all the help we can get if we’re going to fight the plastics industry and its assault on the facts.

Together we’ve been fighting to get this done and we can’t stop now. Passing SB 405 means the rest of the state will join the 75 California communities like LA County that have taken a stand by banning single-use plastic bags.

We can do this!

Thanks so much for your support,
