Support Carryout bag reduction and recycling Act
Tell your senator to vote yes for S812 Act-the carryout bag reduction and recycling act. Plastic and paper bags are impacting our wildlife, oceans, forests and cramming our landfills. This act will encourage people to use recyclable bags when they shop by imposing a 5 cent fee on bags given out at stores. The average family of 4 uses 1460 plastic bags a year and this fee could generate millions of dollars that will help reduce pollution. Help save our planet.
