Ban Plastic Bags In Florida

0 have signed. Let’s get to 50,000!

Plastic Bags are an environmental disaster, especially in the State of Florida, which has a very diverse ecosystem. Plastic bags are killing marine life, causing flooding by clogging storm drains and aren't biodegradable. I started this petition because I couldn't tolerate seeing plastic bags in our beautiful waters, on our beaches and within our cities anymore. It's a dangerous form of litter that needs to be eliminated. Get involved by sharing this petition. 

Presently, the cities of Coral Gables, Gainesville, Palm Beach, Surfside, St. Augustin Beach and Bal Harbour has all passed legislation banning plastic bags. 

If you want your city government to consider this please reach out to Michael at 305-588-9469 or

Publix has been behind all efforts to prohibit cities from banning plastic bags. They use a lobbying organization called the 'Florida Retail Federation'.
