Up to 14 million tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans every year: from two-mile-long fishing nets to the microbeads in our toothpaste to everyday items like plastic bottles, bags, and single-use plastic straws.
These plastics are polluting our oceans, threatening our food supply, and harming and even killing sea turtles, whales, seabirds, and other marine life.
But there’s something we can do about this. The California State Legislature is considering an important bill to prohibit dine-in restaurants from giving out wasteful and destructive plastic straws, except upon request.
Tell your state senator to help tackle plastic pollution by supporting AB 1884.
