Surfrider friends! This Wednesday, August 22nd, come on down to Redwood Curtain Brewery at 550 South G St. in Arcata. Join us for a beer and support Surfrider with every pour. Better yet, buy one of our limited $8 pint glasses with our 2012 logo by Matt Beard for your beer and take it home!
Wanna help the world even more? Bring an old T-shirt and we’ll help you make it into a reusable bag, complete with a screen print of our Ban the Bag logo! (Small, light-colored shirts work best, and bring extras if you’ve got ‘em!)
Ban The Bag California!
The California State Legislature is considering a bill that would ban plastic checkout bags at supermarkets, retail pharmacies and convenience stores statewide starting in 2014. Assembly Bill 298 would also require those retailers to provide reusable bags for sale and charge a fee for recycled paper bags as an incentive for customers to remember their reusable bags. California could be the first in the nation to pass a statewide plastic bag ban but it won’t happen without your support!
Our California coasts are valuable drivers of a tourism industry worth billions of dollars and thousands of jobs in our state. It is important to have sound policies to keep our beaches clean and maintain healthy ecosystems. In fact, over 50 local jurisdictions in California have already seen the importance of this action and banned plastic bags. Please let your State Senator know you support this legislation and a phasing out of plastic checkout bags statewide!
UPDATE: We’ve rescheduled to Aug. 22. Same time, same place!
Wouldn’t it be nice if it were that easy? We’ll do our best!
Join us at Redwood Curtain Brewery Wednesday, August 22 from 4 pm to 11 pm, as they generously donate $1 from every pint and goblet purchased to Surfrider Humboldt!
PLUS! We have $8 pint glasses printed with our 2012 Matt Beard logo. We will also be demonstrating our T-shirt Bag-making, complete with a screenprint of our Ban the Bag Humboldt logo.
Don’t miss this event. Family-friendly, happy faces, delicious local beer…all evening long.
