Re: [greenyes] Campaign Against the Plastic Plague (CAPP)

Thanks for the meeting announcement and for letting us know about the great work you're doing. Unfortunately we won't be able to attend, but we wanted to find out if there might be some way for us to work together.

We are two moms in Santa Cruz, CA working to reduce disposable packaging in school lunches. Please visit our Web site at for more information about waste-free lunch programs, success stories from across North America, and links to other waste-free lunch sites. We've also created a waste-free lunch kit (reusable containers, utensils, drink bottles, insulated carrying bags and a book of lunch ideas) that makes it easy for families to pack waste-free lunches. Please let us know how we can work with you to reduce disposable plastics!

And if anyone out there has a waste-free lunch success story to share, email it to us at success@no.address, and we'll post it on the site so others can benefit from your experiences.

What reason do you need to stop using single use disposable plastic?


The Campaign Against the Plastic Plague’s mission: As a result of the harmful
impact of plastic on global ecosystems, economies, and public health,
immediate action must be taken to eliminate single use throwaway plastics. Change
must be established in the consumer lifestyle through education, citizen action,
and business accountability.

We have spent the last four months completing our research and campaign
materials and would welcome the opportunity to present them to you for review and
implementation. As we all know, the reduction of plastic usage, litter and
production is a big job and will only be completed by a comprehensive and
organized campaign. The bigger picture we are working towards is returning the earth
to a healthy and sustainable state!!

This meeting is open to all organizations, volunteers, government staff and
officials, and businesses.
Please RSVP no later than November 29, 2004 so we can send out preparation
materials. Also, please visit our website at for updated
