The Bay vs. The Bag

Plastic bags cause serious problems for the health of our coast and bay shorelines.
San Francisco Bay, the largest estuary on the West Coast, is particularly vulnerable to plastic litter and debris. Thirty percent of California’s land and thousands of miles of creeks and rivers drain to the Bay. It is estimated that more than one million plastic bags end up in the Bay watershed every year, threatening the ecosystem.

Save The Bay is the Bay Area's leading organization is working exclusively to protect, restore and celebrate San Francisco Bay and its watershed. The Bay Area's quality of life and economy depend on a healthy and vibrant Bay. Read more about their Bay vs. Bag campaign.
