At our annual January goal setting meeting, SCOPE members decided to focus on plastics again this year and to possibly hold a conference on this issue in the fall.
- We will work to support the two pieces of legislation on plastic that did not make it through the legislature last year, SB 54 and AB 1080, the California Circular Economy and Pollution Reduction Act, introduced by Assembly member Lorena Gonzalez and Senator Ben Allen. (We urge everyone to write or call their legislator and request that they support these bills)
- We will join with Greenpeace locally by “targeting” our Target stores to get rid of their plastic bags.
- We will form a committee to promote a wildlife bridge across the I-5 freeway in an area where mountain lions, bears and other migrating wildlife have lost their lives to freeway traffic.
- We will continue our work on Chiquita Canyon Landfill and the Santa Clara River.
If you would like to get involved with any of these issues, please contact us.
