New Federal Legislation Addressing Plastic Pollution Introduced

Senator Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-CA) have introduced legislation, Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act, that would require corporations to take responsibility for their share of plastic pollution and greatly expand the nation’s post-use plastics management infrastructure.  The bill also seeks to set up recycling and reuse systems for empty plastic packaging.  RIPA is engaging with the bill’s sponsors to ensure that the industrial packaging reconditioning infrastructure is preserved or enhanced.
