Students from Westside Village School Poised for Bag Ban

From our champions at the capitol to our grassroots activists on the ground, statewide momentum is gaining with the authoring of Senate Bill 536. There’s plenty of ways that you can get involved and help out from gaining business supporters, outreach and education to helping pass city resolutions in your community. We’ve been talking for years now to thousands of Oregonians and the movement is strong and the opposition fierce, but we believe in the power of our educated citizens to help move this issue during the 2011 legislative session. Skeptical about the bag ban, wanna know how this has played out elsewhere such as in our nation’s capitol? Check out this article on “Anatomy of a Bag Ban” on our rise above plastics blog. Start small by signing our petition and visit our Oregon Ban the Bag page to stay up to date on the latest opportunities to get involved and support the cause!
