Our Letter Published in Newsday

Newsday published my (highly abbreviated) letter about Suffolk County’s single use plastic bag proposal this week.

http://www.newsday.com/opinion/letters/letter-newsday-uses-plastic-bags-too-1.11576235

newsdaybagsWe are pushing for similar action in Long Beach, to eliminate single use plastic bag pollution. Thank you for your support.

Can you display that support with one of our bumper stickers??  this show of support will help your neighbors and everyone become aware and transform Long Beach to a reusable bag culture, saving our waterways from tens of thousands of plastic bag assaults and helping keep our streets clean.

Please save the date for our next showing of Bag It at Bridgeworks on April 1!
