Take Action On Single-Use Plastic Bag and Polystyrene Ordinances

The problem of plastic litter is only growing. Plastic is the fastest-growing component of the waste stream, and plastic pollution like expanded polystyrene (eps) and single-use bags are among the most commonly found items during beach and coastal cleanups.  Because plastic essentially never biodegrades, once littered plastic becomes a permanent environmental problem.

The solution is clear: highly-littered plastic items like plastic bags and polystyrene food packaging need to be banned. Californians should reduce their use of disposable packaging. Find out more about our Campaign to End Single Use Plastic Bags and other plastic litter.

There are over 100 local ordinances limiting single use plastic bags.
