Hey Venice! How about taking a few seconds to send a note to your elected official? You know, a little nudge to make sure she does the right thing regarding plastic and the ocean. And, if you don’t live in Venice, we have included the reps from other areas as well. Now go get in the water!
The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the World’s ocean, waves, and beaches, for all people, through a powerful activist network.
Their irreplaceable national network of chapter volunteers serves as the first response to local threats in coastal communities across the US. They are the boots on the ground who collaborate on both the local and national level with regional staff and issue experts to carry out our mission through campaign, program and educational initiatives in their local communities.
Here is a message from Surfrider LA
STOP PLASTIC POLLUTION!
Help Make History in California!
California is on the verge of passing one of the most progressive plastic pollution reduction laws in the nation and we need your help contacting high priority targets to say:
“Hello! My name is _______________ and as a constituent I urge Assembly Member ______________ to vote AYE on SB 54 and AB 1080 to curb plastic pollution in California.
SB54 and AB1080 is an unprecedented effort that would set goals to reduce waste from single-use packaging and products and ensure the remaining items are effectively reusable or recycled and composted.
Now is the time for California to lead to tackle the plastic pollution crisis. Thanks for your time.”
If you see your Assembly Member below, please call them and urge them to Vote Yes on AB 1080 / SB 54 – The CA Circular Economy & Plastic Pollution Reduction Act!
