WE ARE WORKING ON AN ORDINANCE TOWARD TRASH FREE DINING.

Our Policy Director Miriam Gordon strategically works on California legislation, where sustainable policies have the opportunity  to influence the rest of the nation.

For example, the first citywide bag ban was passed in San Francisco in 2007, then California became the first US state to ban plastic bags in 2014. There are now 26 states with bag bans or fees, as well as 2 US territories (Puerto Rico & American Samoa).

Passing a Trash Free Dining Ordinance in Berkeley, CA will set the standard for sustainable restaurant models across the state of California, as well as the nation.
