In the past few weeks, nearly a dozen media outlets have covered the statewide debate over Assemblymember Mark Stone's AB 319*, a bill that would require all plastic beverage containers sold in California to have caps that are connected to their bottle. As the third most common item found polluting California beaches, AB 319 has the potential to prevent the littering, landfilling, and pollution caused by more than five billion bottle caps discarded in California every year. CAW supports the bill.
