Protect our coasts, ban the bag

Plastic bags pose a direct threat to Massachusetts’ coast and the marine ecosystem we treasure and depend on. Luckily, the solution is simple - towns like yours can ban plastic bags and use reusable ones instead.

Let's get rid of plastic bags

Dear [Decision Maker],

Massachusetts' 1,500 miles of coastline and our beaches are among the Commonwealth's most treasured places - but disposable plastic checkout bags are creating an ecological crisis off our coasts.

Nothing we use for just five minutes should fill our waterways with trash and threaten the wildlife we treasure and depend on. I support banning disposable plastic checkout bags and urge you to as well.
