Let's Reduce Plastic Pollution in California!

To work towards the goal of banning single-use plastics, the Surfrider Foundation has created a petition inviting locals, ocean lovers, environmentalist, and neighboring cities to advocate for change by signing their petition and attending the Santa Monica City Council meeting on Tuesday, August 14th where the amended ordinance will be presented.

Studio Number One created free poster downloads for supporters to download and print to bring to the meeting on August 14th or to show their support on social media. Download the free posters HERE.

Although the city has already banned polystyrene products, the amount of pollution is still prominent in Santa Monica and its neighboring cities. It is reported that 75% of trash that gets buried could be recycled according to an employee of the Santa Monica Office of Sustainability, and Santa Monica hauls upwards of 600,000 pounds of trash on a given day.

Santa Monica is not the only city taking a stance against single-use plastics. Most recently Los Angeles councilman Bob Blumenfield proposed an ordinance to only distribute plastic utensils on request. The proposal tails behind council member Mitch O’Farrell and Nury Martinez’s straws on request initiative introduced in January. The city of Long Beach has gone on to ban Styrofoam food and drink containers. While the city of Malibu, has approved the ban of plastic straws, coffee stirrers, and utensils.

To learn more about the Surfrider Foundation, their petition, or the upcoming council meeting you can go HERE.
