Happy Friday everybody and welcome to another episode of The Reside Daily Bite; I’m your host, David Doucette. Today, a couple of things I want to talk about a great organization: HealtheBay.org. And, this flyer right here is for the upcoming Coastal Clean Up which is happening on September 25th from 9 to noon all along the coasts in California. So, if you live near the coast (and it’s also happening in some inland areas as well), I encourage you to check that out and I will be giving more information on future episodes about that.

Speaking of Heal the Bay, there’s a very important bill in the Senate right now (in the California Senate) – the AB 1998. We want this bill to pass because what it’s going to do is have California be the first state in the country to ban single-use plastic bags (grocery stores, drug stores, those kinds of bags). This would be great! There are a lot of organizations behind it, including the California Groceries Association. And we as Californians used 19 billion (that’s with a B!), 19 billion single-use plastic bags a year and many of them are finding their ways into the ocean. If we can cut that out, that would be huge.

For more information, go to HealtheBay.org. On their homepage, go to the right side (there’s an alert button), click that page and there will be instructions; a phone number for you to call your local state Senator and give your support for the bill; and you can also email.

Also, on the HealtheBay.org page is a mockumentary that you should see – the life of a plastic bag narrated by Jeremy Irons.

So hopefully, we can get this bill passed. Tell your friends. If you see this video, share it and get your support behind AB 1998.

My name is David Doucette. Feedback: 1-800-476-5579. Have a great weekend and thank you so much for checking out The Reside Daily Bite.
