Ban plastic bags in Bend now!

My name is Ava and my partner in this issue is Maile. We believe that single-use plastic bags should be banned in the city of Bend, Oregon. Although we are only 13 and 12, we believe that we can make a statement for our generation. This starts with something we deeply care about, our local environment.
Not only do plastic bags contribute massively to global warming, they are also not biodegradable and pollute Central Oregon's beautiful lakes, rivers and streams. Our landfill will continue to fill with these things that never go away, reminding all of us that it is our responsibility to take care of our land.
Banning plastic bags in Bend would mean we can largely help decrease and prevent the problems that they cause. Signing this petition means that you can help keep our lakes, rivers, and streams beautiful.
