The bill to ban StyrofoamTM in California needs your voice! Your Assemblymember needs to hear from you today to get this bill to the Governor’s desk! The Senate has already passed this ban, let’s push it the rest of the way!
Over the past several years, Surfrider Foundation California Chapters have been working to eradicate styrofoam litter in their local Chapter areas. Now 50 municipalities in California have regulated polystyrene take-out ware! Shouldn’t this good idea be taken statewide?Absolutely! Senate Bill 568 will reduce the amount of polystyrene foam litter in our waste stream and environment by prohibiting the distribution and use of foam containers by food vendors. Right now, we have a critical opportunity to support legislation that would clean up our beaches. Please contact YOUR elected official and urge support for this important legislation.
Find a location to drop off your waste polystyrene packaging foam (aka EPS foam or “styrofoam”).
