WOW! It's finally happened!  California just voted for a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags!

It's amazing what can happen when you take perseverance, diligence, and dedicated colleagues (individuals and organizations alike) - and speak from a place of truth.  Yaaaay!!  This has been years in the making, and we are all indebted greatly to the many people and orgs that we have worked with over the years to make this happen.

Now on to the Governor for signature.

The California Senate (and Senator Alex Padilla) have been rocking tonight!  #SB1138 passed the legislature this evening, and will help us enjoy safer and more #sustainable seafood through accurate labeling!

Our efforts to reduce single-use bag consumption are paying off!  We had a BIG win yesterday in Sacramento with California's proposed ban of single-use plastic bags passing a key committee. . . . but there are a few more steps to go.  Our colleagues at CAW put together a nice action page :http://Tiny.cc/banthebag #SB270
