Can we ban the plastic bag in Long Beach? Long Beach C.L.E.A.N.S.-U.P.: A campaign to eliminate the plastic pollution it creates.

“Join our Long Beach C.L.E.A.N.S.-U.P. (Combined Local Effort to Avoid Needless Single-Use Plastic) campaign to eliminate the plastic pollution it creates.

Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes—single-use disposable bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is “away?”

Long Beach can lead on a plastic bag ordinance. These laws have already passed in other localities and one is approaching passage in NYC.

The average use-life of a single use plastic bag is just 12 minutes of “convenience”, and it will then remain in the environment everafter. We have an obligation to recognize we’ve made a mistake as a society, change, and stop doing it. One resuable bag eliminates 1000 plastic bags!

Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to our environment, marine life and human health? Support our campaign to make plastic bag pollution a thing of the past. For more information, please visit: or event page on facebook.

“LONG Beach, or LNG Beach” on Wednesday, October 8 at 7 pm at Long Beach Public Library [It’s the issue that just won’t go away!]

Long Beach faces a newly revised and revitalized push to install a Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Port off Its shore. This “plan” will probably be fast tracked, right during the winter when thousands of beachgoers and surfers are not as easily mobilized. Last time we had no warning. This time we must be prepared. Local opposition will take shape at this event.

Be the local voice with us!

Wednesday, October 8th at 7pm
