KNOCK KNOCK…who’s there? Not Clean Ocean Action! (COA)

COA does not go door-to-door. We do not solicit funds or signatures, or distribute information through canvassing. If you have questions or concerns, COA suggests contacting your town administrator. Please further note that Clean Ocean Action has no financial affiliation with the organization called Clean Water Action (formerly known as NJ Environmental Federation) or any other canvasing organization.

Plastic Bag Fee is on the Horizon

The New Jersey State Legislature passed a bill (A3267/S2600), but it only sets a 5-cent fee on all single-use plastic and paper bags throughout the Garden State.  We are urging Governor Murphy to veto and fix it with actions that will truly make a difference.  They include:

•       Phasing-out and banning bags by 2020-2021

•       Protect towns that want or have strong laws

•       Charge 10-cent fee on all other bags

•       Dedicate the funds to help reduce litter and lead in drinking water

•       Requiring enforcement of and education about the law

Call Governor Murphy at 609-292-6000 and urge him to veto and fix A3267/S2600


SIGN THIS PETITION before the August 23rd joint Senate and Assembly hearing on plastics! 


Williams Transco. is proposing to build a 23-mile fracked gas pipeline through the Raritan Bay, residential communities in Sayreville & Old Bridge, under the Garden State Pkwy, and near Cheesequake State Park. It would also include a 32,000 Horsepower compressor station (gas engine) that could affect the air of South Brunswick, Franklin, and Princeton area residents.

The dangers posed to the health and safety of residents, visitors, wildlife, and the environment from emitted toxic gas, noise, potential fires, and explosion are too great. 

Governor Phil Murphy
has until June 23rd to reject a crucial permit that could help stop this dangerous project. Call Gov. Murphy at (888) 724-8943!
