We are very close to having a bag ban passed in California. This would be HUGE for CA and the USA.
Please help by:
1. Contact your CA senator. Click on this link: http://shar.es/mjKBi to email them.
2. The most effective way to register your support is by calling your State Senator’s local office to simply say “My name is _____ and I live in _____ . Please ask Seantor _____ to support AB 1998 to ban most plastic bags in California.”

The call only takes 15-20 seconds but is very effective. Here is a list of local State Senators and their office phone numbers to call:

The governor is ready to sign—let’s put pressure on the senate to pass this bill! If AB1998 passes, many marine mammals will be saved…not to mention money for cleaning litter and saving petroleum. The drama of cities wanting to pass bag ordinances, but fearing being sued will be over!
