Help us Influence Zero Waste Policy!
Zero Waste Humboldt writes advocacy letter regarding California Health Code # 114353
Zero Waste Humboldt is in support of changing California Health Code #114353, which prohibits the use of certain reusable items at outdoor festivals and events. Recently we sent in a letter to the California Conference of Directors of Environmental Health to begin the movement to change this rule. Help us change this policy by writing and calling in! Go to our Get Involved page for a letter template and more information.
