Phase-out Plastic Bags in California Now - Pass SB 405 Authored by Senator Alex Padilla

To be delivered to The California State House and The California State Senate

Petition Statement

Please protect California's environment by voting for the plastic bag ban bill (SB 405) authored by Senator Alex Padilla. Each year Californians use more than 14 billion single-use plastic bags. Just 5% are recycled, the rest can be found in our streams, rivers and beaches, dumped in our landfills, or blighting our communities. Local governments spend millions of dollars each year to clean-up plastic bag litter. Join our coalition of environmental and business groups and vote yes to ban the plastic bag.
There are currently 2,790 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Each year Californians use more than 14 billion single-use plastic bags. They are blight on our communities, fill our landfills, clog inland waterways, litter our beaches and mountains, and kill thousands of fish, marine mammals and seabirds. Join our coalition of environmental and business groups and sign the petition today! Supporters include: Sierra Club, NRDC, Surfrider, Clean Water Action, Heal the Bay, Planning & Conservation League and Californians Against Waste.
