The problem is huge, and our Mayor and City Council listened to us and responded with a letter of their own. You can learn more about it by clicking this link here. You can take action by using this sample letter provided at this link and also see the attachment of what our Mayor composed addressing this issue on behalf of our city. Thank you for being part of the solution by becoming informed, writing your representatives, and taking a reusable bag with you to the store!
Now we can direct our letters to Senator Joe Simitian (fx: 916-322-3519), and fax a copy to the author, Assembly Member, Lloyd Levine (Fax 916 319 2140), and to Californians Against Waste (Fax 916 443 3912), who will present them to the Governor at the appropriate time.
