Who are we?
From the beginning, our mission has been to better the environment by reducing the number of plastic bags. Along with people all around the world, we work to reduce the number of plastic bags and switch to a more eco friendly option. We consider it a privilege and an honor to be able to help the world around us and be the next movement of BBPB. As the world continues to evolve, our mission statement will always remain the same: helping the environment around us by encouraging our community to say no to single-use plastics.
BBPB CA is always looking for people to get involved, and of course we understand everyone has different schedules. We recommend that you fill out the Interest Form so you can receive emails from us about any future events or updates! You can always unsubscribe at anytime. If you feel interested, after attending a couple monthly meetings, take a look at how you can apply to be a local coordinator or a part of our Social Media Core Team!
