SB 270 – California’s Statewide Plastic Bag Ban Moves Forward
Senate Bill 270, passed the Assembly Appropriations Committee just last Thursday.This was a big win for the state bag bill, but of course it now heads to the full Assembly for debate and discussion.. The deadline to pass both houses is August 31st.
To date, 116 cities and counties with a third of our state’s population have recognized the environmental and economic costs of plastic bag pollution, and adopted a local single-use plastic bag ordinance. Our state still needs a solution!
If you haven’t already, take action here and share it with your friends. It just takes a few seconds to let your legislator know you support a statewide bag ban.
If SB 270 moves forward, California will become the first state in the nation to pass a comprehensive ban on single-use plastic bags!
