Ban the Bag in Santa Monica
Go Reusable! It is Doable! Ban the Plastic Bag!
On Tuesday, January 25th, 2011 Santa Monica's City Councilmembers will hopefully pass the Single-use Carryout Bag Ordinance. This will ban plastic bags and put a cost on single-use paper bags in the city. Team Marine has been waiting for this to happen for about three years. We are very excited to attend the Council meeting, and will be involved in the meeting. Students will be giving speeches, dressing up in plastic pollution suits, presenting the results of petitions and research projects, protesting silently with signs, etc. Known as one of the greenest cities in the country, Santa Monica needs to pass this ban!
What do we want? To ban the plastic bag! When do we want it? Now!
The public meeting will be held in the in Council Chambers, located at City Hall, .
