    tested harmful chemicals were found in their bottled water So to get rid of some plastic in your life drink from the tap and attach a filter if you don t like the taste It is healthier for you and for the planet Read some more about tap water vs bottled water here here and also at this very comprehensive Wikipedia page here and see for yourself Our second speaker Meredith McCarthy from Heal the Bay is working hard on the plastic bag ban here in Southern California and she told us about hit and miss events where they organized groups of volunteers to clean up the beach while at the same time giving them bottled water to stay hydrated She laughed as she recalled the moment when they realized how backwards that was but Meredith said they keep on improving and learning every day always keeping in mind that the main goal is to keep the bay and our waters healthy Meredith has been working with Coby Sky Civil Engineer at Los Angeles County Department of Public Works to successfully ban plastic bags in LA County and she continues her work all over the City of LA to protect our waters and our planet from the plastic pollution According to the waste facts on CleanAir org The state of California spends about 25 million dollars sending plastic bags to landfill each year and another 8 5 million dollars to remove littered bags from streets Every year Americans use approximately 1 billion shopping bags creating 300 000 tons of landfill waste Plastic bags do not biodegrade Light breaks them down into smaller and smaller particles that contaminate the soil and water and are expensive and difficult to remove Less than 1 percent of plastic bags are recycled each year Recycling one ton of plastic bags costs 4 000 The recycled product can be sold for 32 When the small particles from photodegraded plastic bags get into the water they are ingested by filter feeding marine animals Biotoxins like PCBs that are in the particles are then passed up the food chain including up to humans The City of San Francisco determined that it costs 17 cents for them to handle each discarded bag If you want to help with the plastic ban which by the way only applies to single use t shirt bags not produce bags you can easily start at home by always carrying your own canvas bag to the store and encouraging your friends and family to do the same If you own a business visit and get some inspiration there Andy Shrader our third panel was just as passionate about the plastic ban which he pursues as a volunteer He is working on changing the word one bag at a time and one letter at a time Andy brought with him signs and letters and envelopes and sign in sheets to the screening to get a pledge from the audience and to mail handwritten letters to
