The Story of California’s Plastic Bag Ban

In 2014, California passed a law to phase out wasteful, single-use plastic grocery bags, with broad support from local governments, business groups, unions, retailers, and environmental organizations. More than 150 communities across California have already banned plastic bags.

But plastic bag companies from Texas, South Carolina, and New Jersey are trying to overturn this law. Now it’s up to us to protect California’s plastic bag ban—the first statewide bag ban in the nation—to save our oceans, marine wildlife, and our neighborhoods from plastic pollution.

Vote YES on Prop 67 to protect California's plastic bag ban.
