Recently we told you about AB 1998, legislation in Sacramento that would ban single-use shopping bags. Sufrider Foundation Global HQ has put out this Action Alert. Please take a moment and register your support for this important legislation.
Sierra Club San Diego is hosting a meeting tonight on the very risky Gregory Canyon Landfill. This horrific project would result in contamination of drinking water, foul the San Luis Rey River and contaminate surfspots and beaches downstream. See the meeting notice below.

We need your help. There is an important piece of legislation working its way through Sacramento that would ban single-use bags at stores of a certain size ("Mom and Pops" would not be affected). Here's what the legislation will do and why it's needed, on a fact sheet that you can read or download. Single-use plastics choke out creeks, streams, rivers and kill aquatic and marine life. This type of legislation has been proposed before but has died in committee because the plastics industry and their lobbyists have long held sway over Sacramento. It's time to change that and here are some easy steps you can take with the simplest ways first! Please take a moment and help.
