For decades, billions of pounds of plastic garbage have been carried by wind and waves into the Pacific Ocean. All this plastic has formed the Pacific Garbage Patch, a toxic soup of trash swirling off our coast. It's an environmental disaster for ocean wildlife. Tens of thousands of sea turtles, whales, birds, and seals die every year from contact with plastic pollution. It's critical that we reduce the number of single-use plastic bags in the ocean, and Oregon can lead the way. I urge you to cut the flow of pollution into the ocean by supporting a ban on disposable plastic bags.

To:
City Council of Bend, Oregon
Stop the distribution of single-use plastic bags in all retailers and grocery stores in Bend, Oregon.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Plastic bags were created for convenience, not necessity, and contribute to larger environmental issues that we can control through our own return to self-sufficiency when it comes to shopping bags!
