"We're looking at the symptoms of an abused Russian River watershed,  and then using the Eel River to mop it up," says David Keller of Friends of the Eel River.


Dan Jacobson, legislative director of Environment California tells EcoNews Report he's excited that the state will use less plastic.

"But I think more importantly, what it means is that there's going to be a change in consciousness."

Jacobson tells Delia Bense-Kang, MPA Coordinator at the NEC, that the plastic industry tried to confuse voters with Propostion 65. He remains optimistic about reduced energy use and pollution, and feels like California voted on the right side of history.

HSU

The HSU Pledge is a new pledge which encourages students of all standing to get involved on our campus and in our commuity. With the success and excitement born from the Graduation Pledge, the question was, "why wait?" We have seen tremendous support and enthusiasm for the Graduation Pledge at commencement ceremonies since 1987, and we hope to channel that energy back into our campus community by making lasting connections. The HSU Pledge is a simple reminder that we, students, faculty, staff and alumni, have the power to build our campus into one that we are proud of.
