Youth Club Takes Foam Ban to Capitol

Last Tuesday, students from Bandon High School’s Surfrider Youth Club joined students from Sunnyside Environmental School at the Capitol in Salem to testify on HB 2762, a bill that would eliminate the use of polystyrene lunch trays in schools. Ten students from our youth club were joined by teacher Trent Hatfield and made the long haul from Bandon in order to testify in front of the Senate Committee on Education as well as take a quick tour of the Capitol. The bill passed committee today and is on it’s way to floor for final reads.

Rise Above Plastics Bills – Headed to Senate

Two pieces of legislation have caught the eye and advocacy of our Surfrider Chapters in Oregon this session, both offering opportunities to make some decent progress for our ongoing Rise Above Plastics initiative. First up is HB 3478, currently on the house floor for it’s third reading aims to phase out the use of plastic microbeads, which are becoming ubiquitous in many personal care products like toothpastes, cosmetics and facial scrubs. Designed to be washed down the drain, these plastic particles are not removed from most wastewater treatment plants and ultimately end up polluting our waterways and oceans. Next up is HB 2762, which requires school districts to eliminate use of polystyrene foam plates, trays and other food containers in school meal service. Initiated by students, this is an awesome aim to remove some of the worst and least recyclable trash from our waste stream  and has some of our youth clubs fired up to visit Salem!

Ocean Policy Advisory Council to Meet May 7-8th

The Ocean Policy Advisory Council (OPAC) will be meeting May 7-8th, in Bandon Oregon and your recreational ocean voices should be heard! What do recreational users have to do with Ocean Policy…quite simply, alot! From Surfrider’s engagement in various OPAC processes over the years such as Territorial Sea Planning, we’ve helped to protect some of Oregon’s most special recreational areas while providing other opportunities for renewable energy development. We’ve negotiated tough paths to protect special ecosystems through marine reserves while keeping the majority of our nearshore open to our local fishing communities. From the water we swim and surf in to the special and important recreational areas we hold close, our surfing, beach-loving, dog-walking, diving and greater recreational community has a lot to do with ocean policy!
