Plastics are made from fossil fuels and pollute at every stage of their manufacture and use. They’re dangerous to wildlife, and they contaminate our recycling and jam up our recycling machinery, increasing recycling costs across the board.
Rhode Island has a chance to lead in New England by banning single-use plastic bags across the entire state – but it’s also at risk of passing a weak law that would re-introduce thick plastic bags to cities and towns that have already banned them.
Make your voice heard and tell your representative in the House: Pass a strong plastic bag ban – don’t gut the more effective local bans already in place.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Conservation Law Foundation.
Amend the bag ban bill, H-5671
