May 17 - Take Three Steps This Weekend To Phase Out Plastic Bags

Friends,

Our effort to Ban Plastic Bags is under attack!

The plastics industry is airing radio and TV ads across the state making false and misleading claims about the environmental impacts of their product.

We are just 14 days away from a ‘live or die’ vote in the State Senate on SB 405 (Padilla), which will ban single-use plastic bags in California.

We need you to take three simple steps this weekend to support our efforts:

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

The next two weeks are crucial. The plastics industry is pulling out all the stops and we have to be ready to respond.

Will you help by making a contribution right now?

These are corporate giants who continue to rake in profits. We can’t match them dollar for dollar. But with our drive and passion, and support from people like you, who care about the impacts of plastic bag pollution, we can make a difference!

We’ve been working to ban single-use plastic bags for years. It’s time for the rest of the state to join the 75 California communities like LA County that are taking a leadership role by passing local ordinances and standing up to the plastics industry in the process.

Let’s do this!

Thanks so much for your support,

Mark Murray
Executive Director, CAW
