Yes to 67 CA Plastic Bag Ban

There will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050!  We see single-use plastic items, including the easily littered plastic bags, polluting our beaches and ocean.  Marine plastic pollution is also extremely harmful, and sometimes fatal, for marine life. That is why Surfrider advocates to Ban the Bag!
