California vs Big Plastic, a coalition of which CAW is a part of, now has 115 local elected officials signed on to endorse efforts to protect SB 270 and the monumental ban on single-use plastic bags in California. The list comprises mayors, council members, and county supervisors from a wide range of geographic locality and party affiliation.
Despite facing a multimillion dollar referendum effort initiated by out-of-state plastic manufacturers days after Governor Brown signed SB 270 into law, the statewide ban continues to experience overwhelming support from voters and local government leaders alike.
At least one council member from six of California’s "Big 10" has publicly endorsed CA vs Big Plastic’s efforts, as well as members from at least 10 cities that had not previously opted to implement a plastic bag ban.
These endorsements are a testimony to the strong support seen across California. Since 2007, 135 municipal and county governments have adopted some form of a ban on single-use plastic bags, and recent polling from the Los AngelesTimes estimates 60% of Californians would vote to affirm the ban.
