Edmonds, WA the next Bag Ban Leader
April 12 2009 | Rise Above Plastics,
by Ximena Waissbluth, Program Director
Here's the cool thing - the city leaders voted on this after a 20 minute presentation from Algalita Marine Research Foundation's Anna Cummins and Dr. Marcus Eriksen who have just begun their JUNKRIDE. Giving away 100 samples of the plastics riddled N Pacific Gyre to educators and organizations, they are cycling from Vancouver to Tijuana giving talks to raise awareness about the problem of plastic pollution.
And clearly, it's working... Ride on Anna and Marcus!
