The Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation needs your help to convince the Newport City Council to pass a plastic bag ordinance! Please sign this petition as soon as possible. Also, send a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting them know why you support an ordinance to ban single-use carryout bags. Your email can be as long as you need it to be: one sentence simply stating your position or a lengthy article on plastic pollution and then stating your position.
Please ask your friends to do this as well!
For more information on the ordinance, check out https://newport.surfrider.org/banthebag/
Also, if you can, please join us for the first public hearing on the ordinance: Monday, March 4th at 6 pm at Newport City Hall (169 SW Coast Highway in Newport). Please wear blue and bring your favorite reusable bag to show your support!
Share this email far and wide. We need to have lots of signatures on the petition and lots of emails sent to City Council, and we need to pack the room on Monday!
