Rise Above Plastics continues to be our most popular campaign here in Hawaii and across the country, and each chapter has done great work educating the public about plastic marine pollution, showing screenings of the new film “Bag It” and encouraging people to reduce the proliferation of single-use plastic bags and bottles.  The Kauai and Maui Chapters helped pass county bans on plastic bags, and despite differences of opinion, most of the chapters support the new bill (SB1363), which would keep those bans in place and impose a $.10 fee on all single-use plastic and paper bags across the state.
