Sens Alex Padilla, Kevin de Leon, and Ricardo Lara should be commended for their support of Senate Bill 270, which would phase out the use of single-use plastic bags in the state of California by 2015.
Plastic bags litter our beaches in California and flow into the San Francisco Bay. More than 90 cities and counties have already banned the distribution of these unnecessary bags and replaced them with inexpensive paper or other reusable type bags. We need all of our senators to support this bill and help California make this important step toward a cleaner, greener California.
