Please take two minutes right now to call NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson to ask him to schedule a hearing on the Skip the Stuff Bill (Int. 1775-B) and bring it to a vote on the council floor.
1. Dial: 212-788-7210 to reach Speaker Johnson's Legislative Office.
2. When someone answers, feel free to use your own words or follow this short script:
"Hi, my name is YOUR NAME and I'm calling from YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD to urge Speaker Johnson to please support the Skip the Stuff Bill (1775-B) and schedule a hearing for it ASAP. The Skip the Stuff bill will help cut NYC's heavy single-use plastic footprint and climate change emissions, and also save our struggling restaurants money. I have a fridge full of ketchup and relish and my drawers are overflowing with plastic forks and soy sauce packets. Most people I know neither need nor want these items with our food in the first place.
Time is running out to pass this simple, effective and popular bill this session and I hope the Speaker will make this a top priority and schedule a hearing immediately."
3. Thank the staffer for taking your call. They may ask you to provide your full address.
4. Once you've hung up, please take a moment to fill out the form on the right to let us know how your call went. A very important step!
Thank you so much for helping to stem the tide of plastic pollution in NYC and beyond.
