California Legislators’ Inconsistent Response to Plastic Pollution

Oakland - Yesterday, the California Legislature failed by one vote to enact AB 1699 (Bloom) a ban on the use of plastic microbeads in personal care products. Meanwhile, SB 270 (Padilla) passed making California the second state in the nation to ban single use plastic grocery bags. According to Miriam Gordon, California Director of Clean Water Action, "passage of the single use plastic bag ban and the failure of the microbead ban by the California legislature makes no sense. Both bills are aimed at eliminating plastic pollution in the marine environment. Thousands of plastic microbeads are discharged to waterways every time someone washes facial and skin scrubs containing plastics down the drain."

California Bans Single-Use Plastic Bags

Yesterday the California Legislature passed a state-wide  plastic bag ban. Clean Water Action applauded the measure, which passed in the Assembly with a 44-29 vote and then back to the Senate where it passed 22-15. California is the second state in the U.S. to enact such a ban - Hawaii was first.

"It took 6 years of advocacy and the building of a grassroots movement to make this happen," said Miriam Gordon, California Director of Clean Water Action, "but with 121 local ordinances already on the books across California, our legislature finally followed the will of the people."
