I'd like to send a shout out to the community of Oceanside (California, USA) for becoming a Zero Waste Community! Kudos to the citizens for pooling their efforts and making this inspiring, positive action towards a healthier planet.

California has a number of legislative actions being proposed at the moment… Starting with a plastic bag ban, which is a huge issue for the environment – especially with litter issues in the state. I heard through the grape-vine that this plastic bag ban was voted down, but have not been able to confirm this as of yet. I do hope that the ban goes through. 

According to Zero Waste San Diego’s email notice, California families pay hundreds of dollars every single year for plastic bag clean-up programs to deal with some of the 19 billion plastic bags distributed by California retailers annually. I wonder if they’ve calculated the cost to the animal rescue organizations and other non-profits...

There are other legislation bills being presented that will further increase waste reduction via recycling, battery collection and post-consumer paint collection systems and composting – and another bill being presented to create a more responsible carpet stewardship program. Carpet is reportedly one of the top 10 waste items in the California waste system and is one of the top 4 carbon dioxide producers in landfills.
