Sacramento: Follow LA's lead and ban plastic bags!

Sacramento: Follow LA's lead and ban plastic bags!

Los Angeles is the largest city in America to ban plastic grocery bags. Eric co-authored this new policy to unclog our stormdrains and landfills and to clean up our streets, beaches, river and ocean. 

But litter and pollution don't respect city limits. We need a statewide ban. Sign our petition below and tell Sacramento to take action.

Sign on and tell lawmakers in Sacramento to follow our lead and ban plastic bags now. It shouldn't be hard for them -- they can just follow the smart model we created here in Los Angeles. Our policy provides time for small businesses to adapt and it creates a 10 cent fee on paper bags to encourage reusable bag use. People receiving public assistance will be exempt from the fee.

Will you sign?
