#justiceOPportunity Thursday: April 30, 2020
Sr. Judy Lu McDonnell, OP
Ms. Lyn Kirkconnell
It’s #justiceOPportunity Thursday and we continued to be inspired by the spirit of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day and the upcoming 5th Anniversary of Laudato Si’. We are inviting you to join us in taking action on a couple of inter-related and timely recycling issues.
1)Take action to protect the forests
The recent surge of demand for toilet paper has put our forests in danger. Demand for at-home toilet paper is through the roof, and manufacturers are struggling to keep up. Call on suppliers to produce recycled fiber TP. Sign the petition to urge TP producers to make toilet paper from recycled fiber and tree plantations instead of critical forests.
SIGN the Petition

2) Take action to reduce the use of single-use plastic in California
State Senate Bill 54 and California Assembly Bill 1080 call for our legislators to reduce the amount of plastic used to package and produce goods. The passage of these bills would hold producers, retailers, and wholesale companies accountable in their production/sales. It also asks that by 2030 all products being sold, distributed, and imported into California be recyclable or compostable.
