New Jersey has the opportunity to make history. Bills S.2776 and A. 4330 would ban single-use plastic bags while putting a fee on paper and reusable bags as well as ban plastic straws and harmful polystyrene foam. If this passes, New Jersey would be the first state to ban plastic bags, foam, and straws together! Take a few minutes and send a message to Governor Murphy and your NJ legislators that you support this significant step towards reducing plastic pollution on New Jersey beaches and out in the ocean!
And YOU can help!
Post any photograph of plastic pollution and tag Surfrider Foundation: Jersey Shore Chapter, with the hashtag #PlasticFreeNJ.
Also, visit our live Action Alert to tell our elected officials that you support banning plastic bags, straws, and foam in New Jersey!
