LET'S PASS THE CALIFORNIA PLASTIC POLLUTION REDUCTION ACT!
RSVP TO JOIN A DAY OF ACTION IN SACRAMENTO (Travel available from Berkeley)
Feeling overwhelmed by the plastic crisis? Join us as we come together to take action to support game-changing legislation on the plastic crisis!
WHY: We’re teaming up with organizations and legislators to pass the most ambitious legislation in the US addressing the plastic crisis. Senate Bill 54 and Assembly Bill 1080 would phase out non-recyclable single-use plastic, drive massive reductions in California’s plastic footprint, and push companies to redesign packaging, creating a blueprint for the zero-waste future we need.
The plastic industry is ramping up efforts to kill the bill, so we need to pull out all the stops and remind legislators who they represent ahead of a crunch vote in the Assembly and Senate. RSVP below to you join us!
WHAT: Join a show of strength at a rally and press conference outside the State Capitol and then help us deliver messages calling on legislators to support SB 54 and AB 1080!
