  1. On a warm Wednesday evening, on a betuaiful roof-deck in Soho, I attended my first meeting with the Surfrider Foundation’s New York City branch.a0a0The monthly meeting, held Wednesday, August 8, was set to talk about Surfrider’s upcoming campaigns and the proposed plan to dredge at Rockaway Beach. The Surfrider Foundation is currently focusing on a campaign to get rid of single use plastic bags in New York City. They are targeting the Queens County Library which is the only library in New York City to give out plastic bags to library patrons. The Surfrider Foundation is asking the public to write a message to the Queens Library, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Mayor Michael Bloomberga0to get them to ban single use plastic bags in all of New York City. They are also asking for the support of local and national organizations.
