Help Surfrider Ban the Bag in Miami

MIAMI NEEDS YOUR HELP

PROTECT WHAT YOU LOVE and ask Rep. Goodson and Senator Dean to put HB661 on the Agriculture & Natural Resources Subcommittee agenda!

The bill (HB 661 / SB 966) gives local governments control to enact plastic bag ban pilot programs. Plastics comprise up to 90% of floating marine debris and up to 80% of the plastic in our oceans comes from land-based sources.
 

Here's how you can help:

1. Please contact Rep. Goodson today and politely ask him to put HB661 on the Agriculture & Natural Resources Subcommittee agenda! Email: tom.goodson@myfloridahouse.gov Phone: 850-717-5050.

2. Please contact Senator Dean and politely ask that SB966 be put on the Senate Environmental Preservation & Conservation Committee! Email: dean.charles@flsenate.gov Phone: (850) 487-5005
