>Dear Friends:

>Last week, I urged you to send letters to your Assembly
>representative asking for his or her support on Assemblyman Lloyd
>Levine's Assembly Bill 2449. You responded generously -- literally
>hundreds of letters were sent -- but the Assembly adjourned before
>the bill could come up for a vote.

>Assembly Member Levine intends to take up AB 2449 on Thursday and we
>will be fighting for every vote. If you have already sent a letter
>to your Assembly Member, please help us further by

>here to let your friends and associates know about this critical campaign.

>Californians use over 19 billion plastic grocery and merchandise
>bags a year (roughly 552 bags per person), creating 147,038 tons of
>unnecessary waste in our landfills. As people throughout the state
>throw away over 600 bags a second, they are creating enough waste to
>circle the planet over 250 times in one year. As bad as they are for
>the on-shore environment, they are deadly in the marine environment.
>Every year, plastic debris - such as bags - kills animals through
>entanglement, suffocation, starvation and ingestion. In the 1980s it
>was estimated that plastic rubbish caused the deaths of over 100,000
>marine mammals and sea turtles a year in the North Pacific alone.
>
>AB 2449 will take the first bite out of this growing environmental
>crisis, but we must have your support to be successful.
