END POLLUTION. BAN PLASTIC BAGS.

In 2014, California passed Senate Bill 270 to become the first state to pass a ban on disposable plastic bags. The legislation was designed to inspire the use of reusable bags, reduce plastic pollution, and improve ocean health. The bill was supposed to be enacted in 2015, but never went into effect. Why? Out-of-state plastic bag manufacturers from Texas, New Jersey, and South Carolina didn’t like the ban. They paid more than $3 million to collect the signatures needed to freeze the bill. Now, they’re on a mission to tell us what to do on your November 8th ballot. Don’t be tricked. Stand Up Against Big Plastic and vote YES on Prop 67.
