Urgent – Need Your Help to Ban Styrofoam in the CA State Assembly, #plastic

Posted on July 20, 2011 by Andy – L.A. Green Machine

Ingredient in Styrofoam Food Containers “May Cause Cancer”

We pushed SB 568, the bill calling for a state-wide ban on polystyrene (Styrofoam) through the State Senate, but the plastics industry has pulled a fast one.  Despite the bill being tagged as non-fiscal, they yanked it into the Assembly Appropriations Committee hoping to kill it.

We need your calls and letter to ALL of the Assembly Appropriations Committee right now, today.  See the blog entries below for talking points and for why this is so important.

Calls, letters and faxes work best, but if you’d like to email them, click their names.
