Heal the Bay has spent years fighting the environmental scourge of marine debris. We’ve organized thousands of beach and river cleanups and we led the fight for the California Ocean Protection Council’s Marine Debris Action Plan. In addition, we’ve fought for bans on Styrofoam and plastic bags and we came up with a flotilla of bills tackling marine debris. All of this effort was in response to the environmental consequences of our addiction to single-use plastic packaging.
Now that I’ve seen the incredible roller-skating, rapping baby ad for Evian water, I’ve reconsidered Heal the Bay’s position. Clearly, flying over French water in petrochemical plastic packages makes people feel young again. Climate change be damned. Those babies are so darned cute and boy can they skate!
