What to Know About the Bag Ban
California voters said yes to Proposition 67, supporting an end to plastic bags polluting our waters and endangering marine life. We’re proud of our state for supporting legislation that protects our coast from millions of plastic bags polluting the environment. Now, get up to speed on what the bag ban means for your average trip to the grocery store.
57,000 Pounds of Trash Collected at Record-Setting Coastal Cleanup Day
On September 17, more than 7,200 volunteers hit Orange County parks, beaches and creeks to join the fight against ocean pollution during Coastal Cleanup Day. Volunteers removed nearly 57,000 pounds of debris – more than 15,000 pounds more than last year’s cleanup – and found obscure items including an inflatable workout ball, chicken feet, an iPad and a car fender.
