Ban single-use plastic bags in Humboldt County

    1. Surfrider  Humboldt
    2. Petition by

      Surfrider Humboldt

Coastal communities are ideal locations for single-use plastic bag bans as plastic pollution in the ocean is especially hard to address. As you read this, there is a growing mass of plastic trash circulating around the Pacific Gyre in the Pacific Ocean !

Since plastic does not biodegrade it remains in the ocean for hundreds of years where it breaks down into tiny particles that resemble plankton.  Fish and other marine life mistake “plastic plankton” for food and thus, plastic enters our food web.

The idea behind banning single use plastic bags is to promote the use of re-useable shopping bags.  Please help ban the single-use plastic bags in Humboldt County by supporting this petition with your signature.

      Plastic bags are an unnecessary burden on the environment and the economy. Picture your favorite street, neighborhood, pasture, field, beach, marsh or parking lot without plastic grocery bags blowing across them. Picture landfills without tons of slow-decaying plastic. Imagine.
