The state of California has an energized environmental justice movement, dedicated to make strides on water issues. As ground zero for the U.S. climate change fight, California has been a leader; California's plastics reduction campaign came as a series of campaigns petitioning markets and stores to do something about its excessive packaging, mobilizing over the last year and a half.

California is taking the lead on the issue and it’s working – because of pressure from states, campaigns from activists, and, forward thinking corporations changing.

Now we need Congress needs to do the same.

It kills us to see turtles choking on straws, dolphins and whales full of plastic bags. It is just so wrong to disregard other lives for our so-called convenience. The EU has banned single use plastics.

Add your name so MoveOn can tell Congress to do the same.
