Petitioning President Obama and the United States Congress

Enact a national drink container deposit law and a single use bag tax

A national drink container deposit law would create 100,000 jobs, and would reduce liter, waste, and carbon emissions. A $.25 single use bag tax would give $.05 back to retailers to enable them to do low cost or free reusable bag promotions, $.10 to underfunded community building programs for youth and others in nature, the arts, mentoring, etc., and $.10 to land and sea cleanup efforts. I am a grandma on a sustainability mission for our nation and am riding my bicycle from Montana to D.C. to help this petition grow. Please join your voice with mine to help create a Happy Mother's Day for Mother Earth!!
