Bye bye single-use plastic! AB 619 WAS SIGNED INTO LAW. This California statewide law allows temporary food facilities at events to serve in reusable containers, and clarifies existing health code laws so people can use reusable containers at restaurants for take-out. What a huge step in rising above plastics!
In the Goleta area and want to make a difference in reducing plastic waste statewide? Attend CALPIRG’s press conference this Thursday, July 25th at 11:30am at the Goleta Pier. CALPIRG and Environment California canvassers will be joined by supporters of current plastic waste reduction legislation to speak on the importance of keeping plastic out of our environment.
