It’s time for the state of California to follow the lead of more than 50 of our cities and dump the plastic bag.
Named by Guinness World Records as “the most ubiquitous consumer item in the world,” single-use plastic bags are a leading source of pollution worldwide, including in California. Californians use and throw away 12 billion (yes, that’s billion with a “b”) of these bags each year with devastating consequences for marine life.
