Monday marked the beginning of CalPIRG’s Oceans Week, which began with a Ban Plastic Bags event in the quad.
“We’re trying to get petitions to ban plastic bags in the city of Davis. We want 6,500 petitions to try to get a quarter of the campus to say that they’d support a plastic bag ban. Right now we have 4,300 petitions signed,” said Donna Favard, UC Davis CalPIRG vice chair.
Favard said that they were also attempting to show the UC Davis Bookstore that there are students on campus [who] would be interested in banning plastic bags from the bookstore.
