Overview: Pollution from single-use plastics harms our planet, our wildlife, and our own health. Much of this pollution comes from plastic items we don't need in our lives at all - from plastic grocery bags to polystyrene (aka Styrofoam) takeout food containers. The plastics project aims to push forward both local and statewide legislation to ban single-use plastic bags. Currently, we are focused on forming key partnerships with other organizations, such as ANJEC and the Plastic Pollution Coalition, & taking action for a state plastics bill to pass through the state Assembly.
What you can do: There are so many ways you can get involved, and some examples are writing Letters to the Editor, researching plastics-related policy, and finding local organizations we can work with to advocate for a state plastics bill. Feel free to contact the coordinators, and we will provide a more detailed guide on how you can help!
