Florida communities say NO to plastic bags!

Did you know that the Florida Legislature prohibits local communities in Florida from regularing, taxing, banning or limiting plastic bags? That’s right- it’s against the law for a town to ban bags in Florida! RAP BOTTLE AND BAG design

To show the Florida Legislature that the bag ban preemption is NOT the will of the people, volunteers all over the state have been diligently gathering resolutions of support from their home towns. To date, twelve communities had passed resolutions asking for the ability to regulate bags at the local level. The communities range from St. Augustine to Miami Beach to Melboune Beach to Key Biscayne!

Will your town be next? Visit our campaign page to find out how you can help get a resolution passed by your city or county commission!
