Petition to ban single-use plastic bags

Volunteers at Clean Ocean Access have removed over 10,000 plastic bags from the ocean and shoreline of Aquidneck Island since 2013. Please take a moment to sign this petition requesting the city of Newport, Middletown, and Portsmouth to create an ordinance to 100%  ban single-use carryout checkout bags. We hope for this plan to be implemented by Earth Day, 2017.
