200 Groups Urge Passage Of Packaging Reduction And Recycling Act (Part 2)

On Thursday, January 18, state lawmakers and advocates held a news conference calling for the adoption of the state Packaging Reduction and Recycling Infrastructure Act. The bill will reduce plastic packaging by 50% over 12 years to dramatically reduce waste, improve recyclability of packaging, and slash greenhouse gas emissions associated with plastic (which are currently on track to outpace the emissions from coal by 2030). In part 2 of our coverage, we hear from Judith Enck of Beyond Plastics as well as the responses by her and Senator Harckham, one of the bill’s leader sponsors, to questions from reporters.
