    Ban the Plastic Bag Yes Prop 67 Nov 8BAN THE PLASTIC BAG IN LOS ANGELES!

    We at AWAKE have been working since 2006 to ban plastic bags in Southern California. Californians use 12 billion, yes billion, plastic bags each year. Each bag is used an average of 12 minutes before it is thrown away. Less than 5% are ever recylced.

    Plastic bags are polluting our oceans, rivers, wetlands, and open spaces. They become airborn in landfills so are one of the worst sources of plastic pollution today. In just a short amount of time, plastic bags break down into small pieces of plastic -- that cause sickness, hormonal changes and even death in wildlife and humans.

    It really is just a small thing -- to remember to bring a cloth bag with you when shopping. Your mindfulness will save millions of fish and animal lives. And keep our earth more beautiful!

    Will you join AWAKE and Heal the Bay (and many others!) -- and BAN THE PLASTIC BAG? VOTE YES ON PROP 67 NOVEMBER 8TH in California.

  • Happy Earth Day - Say No to Straws!

    Posted April 22, 2014 at 9:38 a.m. to AWAKE Community Public | Comment

    We use 500 Millions straws a day

    In the United States we use 500 MILLION straws each day. None of them are recycled.

    Straws are Marine Debris

    Straws are found in marine debris more than most any other plastic trash. Do you really need that straw? You don't drink coffee with a straw! You don't drink wine with a straw. You don't drink beer with a straw. So why your water or soda? Try forgoing the straw, or if you really need one, bring your own stainless steel one

    This Earth Day take the No Straw Challenge. Going Straw Free is not only smart, it's cool!
