California Senate Bill 424 is an exciting bill waiting to be voted on in the CA Assembly. If you’re not familiar, this bill would eliminate single-use filters that are typically made from cellulose acetate – a huge win for plastic litter source reduction.
The San Diego County Chapter has created a video to help our statewide push to encourage people to contact their assembly members and urge them to vote in favor of the bill. SB 424 will likely be heard on the assembly floor in January so you can use this action alert to let your State legislators know this is an important issue to you.
