Fuel the Fight Against Plastic Pollution in our Schools AND Oceans!

Did you hear the news that the American Chemistry Council's messaging made it into California textbooks?

We might not have the money or the lobbying power that the American Chemistry Council does, but we have the power to educate our youth with environmental truth, organize our community to protect and care for our environment, and to ban single-use plastic bags and polystyrene take-out containers from local jurisdiction and counties surrounding the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. And we will stop at nothing to protect our marine environment and communities from the blight of plastic pollution.

Your $15 donation ensures 1 more student will see how disposable plastics negatively affect marine life. Students who participate in the Save Our Shores Plastic Pollution education program learn first hand how to protect their environment AND their health by limiting their use of disposable plastics. Please donate today!

We attained a great victory this month after grassroots activism influenced community leaders to change their course and pass a polystyrene ban in the city of Salinas. Read the Huffington Post article on our win...

We are still celebrating this victory today, but the plastic industry will stop at nothing to pollute our rivers, oceans, and classrooms with disposable plastics and consumer marketing. Immediately after this win the media released breaking news that through a mountain of pressure and influence, the American Chemistry Council achieved a great feat of their own - the inclusion of pro-plastic language in textbooks and workbooks around the nation.
