Great news from Care2 member Michael Sean Wright: thanks to his Care2 petition, single use plastic bags may soon be banned in Dana Point, California.
The City Council of Dana Point, CA will be considering a proposal to ban single use plastic bags during a public hearing on Monday, September 26, 2011. We would like to show our city leaders the overwhelming support for the initiative to “Rise Above the Plastic,” “Ban the Bag”and “Save OUR Ocean” by eliminating plastic bags from our beautiful city.
We are asking people from around the World to join the swelling wave of support and tell the City Council of Dana Point, CA that you care about this issue and want a cleaner Coast for all of us.
And here’s the latest from Michael:
“Woot! Dolphins, Whales, Marine Life and Humans unite in congratulating the City Council on the decision to act promptly to ‘Ban the Bag’ – single use plastic bags will soon no longer be welcomed in Our Ocean in Dana Point.
On September 26, 2011, the City Council voted 4 to 1 to move the proposal forward. Next step is a report expected on or near December 1st. Our City leaders acted as true leaders and stewards. We want to thank Council Members Lara Anderson, Lisa A. Barlett, Steven H. Weinberg and our very Honorable Mayor, Scott Schoeffel for their wisdom and dedication to our beloved Dana Point. The interest and support that Dana Point received from around the World was deeply felt and greatly appreciated.
Together, we showed our support and desire to ‘Rise Above the Plastic.’ Thank you and please consider visiting us in Dana Point soon. Our City is focused on ensuring that our Harbor, shore and village space remains a true wonder of beauty.”
