Thank Corvallis City Councilors for Banning the Bag!

Single-use plastic bags represent one of the greatest environmental catastrophes of our generation. It is estimated that 60-80% of all debris in the ocean is land-based plastic. Plastics take hundreds of years to break down at sea and most types never truly biodegrade. As a result, marine animals often get entangled in the debris or mistake it for food.

For these and other reasons, the Oregon Chapters of the Sierra Club is working with partner organizations like the Oregon Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation and urging local Corvallis members and citizens to pass a local ordinance that promotes the use of reusable bags, bans plastic checkout bags and requires retailers to charge for paper checkout bags.

Unfortunately, Hilex Poly based out of Hartville, South Carolina is wielding corporate dollars and has hired PR firm Gallatin to run a campaign that doesn't represent the interest of Corvallis citizens. 

Stand up for your local community and don't allow corporate dollars to manipulate your local democratic process! Participate in the Action Alert below!
