Our Sea Cliff reusable bag campaign team have been super active, getting school-wide screenings of Bag It shown this week, preparing for our first local beach clean up, involving local officials, producing some major art and educational efforts, like these Groovy Solutions showing you already have many plastic bags every week you CANNOT avoid, that you can reuse, and that you probably don’t need single use shopping bags for pet waste. Thanks to Lorraine, John, Lori, Laura, Leslie, Amy, Amy, Judy, Kate, and everyone else making change!
We work with some amazing organizations who are making change, too! Thanks to Food and Water Watch, Move Forward LI, Sane Energy Project, NY Communities for Change, NYPIRG, and many others working for a just transition to a renewable energy economy.

What are we thankful for?
We have the greatest volunteer team around.. and they make it all happen when we call on them. This past week they turned out for a rally on the freezing cold Long Beach Boardwalk to get NY Off Fossil Fuels, covered in Newsday. Thanks to Joanne, Karen, Susan, Shelley, Karin, Jayne, Barbara and everyone else who came out!
They’ve been diligently seeking, collecting, including reusable bag use info sheets, and then distributing reusable bag donations from local businesses for other organizations to give away during the holiday season, many going out this week with Thanksgiving meals in them in Long Beach, Sea Cliff and Lynbrook.
Do you know what else we are thankful for?

Thanks to everyone who came to see Bag It at Grassroots in Glen Head! Wow, what a motivated group- lets get this done!!
So many upcoming events, and the Sea Cliff team is really making huge strides getting the message out!
Thanks to Rob and Amy of Grassroots for hosting and donating to the campaign!
Another unwanted pipeline coming onshore? Just, why?
This Saturday 11/18/17 at noon, we will rally on the Long Beach Boardwalk with our allies from New York Communities for Change, Food & Water Watch, NYPIRG, Sane Energy Project, Move Forward Long Island, Show Up Long Island, Sierra Club Long Island Group and others to send a message to Governor Andrew Cuomo: Stop fracking infrastructure in New York!
As part of a statewide week of action, we’re calling on Governor Cuomo to be a true climate leader: #CuomoWalkTheTalk and get New York #OffFossilFuels: to stop the Williams pipeline and other projects that transport and burn fracked oil & gas and commit to transitioning to 100 percent renewable energy.
On Saturday, November 18 at noon, join us on the Long Beach boardwalk at National Boulevard (in front of the Allegria Hotel).
We Want To Thank Our Reusable Bag Donors So Far –

They’ve donated their company’s reusable bags, so when organizations in Nassau deliver holiday meals, we will help them avoid needless throwaway bag #pollution, while giving everyone the means to be a steward of our environment and to bring their own bag.
Can your business help us provide bags for more meals to be delivered in this year? Contact us now to be part of this transformative change and donate your company’s reusable bags!
We are happy to announce a new partnership with the Village of Sea Cliff for the beach clean up you’ve all been waiting for!
