Just moments ago the LA City Council voted to ban single use plastic bags - listening to the voices of students and community members who support protecting the ocean and reducing plastic pollution.
Will you help score the biggest win yet to keep plastic out of the Pacific?
In the next two weeks, the City of Los Angeles could take a huge step toward the biggest plastic bag ban in the country.
It was a BIG week for our student loan interest rates campaign starting with a BIG press conference in DC.
PIRG In The News
Local politicians and environmental advocates joined the UC Berkeley chapter of CALPIRG on Upper Sproul Plaza Wednesday to speak about the importance of banning the distribution of single-use plastic bags in California.
CALPIRG is meeting with Congresswoman Lois Capps tomorrow to talk about the upcoming farm bill discussions and where priorities should be for federal farm subsidies.
Rich Williams, the higher education advocate for the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, said in a statement that Congress is “blindsiding about 143,000 students next year.”
Student groups at UCSB including the Associated Students Coastal Fund, Environmental Affairs Board, Isla Vista Surfrider Foundation and CalPirg, have banded together with campus administration and the Plastic Pollution Coalition to make a profound impact on the campus community and the City of Santa Barbara.
