Ban PLASTIC bags in Key Biscayne

Key Biscayne Residents & Visitors - Let's get together and BAN Plastic bags from our island!
Please sign and share this petition asking Winn-Dixie and CVS Pharmacy to discontinue using plastic bags in their Key Biscayne locations. Winn-Dixie and CVS have been great partners in our island community and we think Key Biscayne is a perfect pilot location for them to discontinue plastic bag usage.

There's a growing movement in the State of Florida to protect our waters from plastic pollution.

* Plastic bags are among the most common sources of marine debris, where they can be mistaken as food by birds and fish
* Scientists estimate that more than 8 million metric tons of plastic is entering our ocean every year. If we don’t act now, there could be a pound of plastic for every 3 pounds of fish in the ocean by 2025
* Plastic bags don’t biodegrade, meaning they don't break down naturally when littered into our waters.

I started this petition because I believe that together we can help decrease marine debris, create awareness and contribute to a sustainable society. Key Biscayne can follow the lead of Coral Gables who recently became the first city in Florida to ban plastic bags.
Let's all come together for a lasting healthy  planet!
