ACT ON PLASTIC

circular economy

SIGN PETITION TO SUPPORT CALIFORNIA LEGISLATION TO REDUCE PLASTIC POLLUTION 

“California Circular Economy and Pollution Reduction Act”

Petition will be sent to the offices of:

California Governor Gavin Newsom
California State Senators
California State Assemblymembers

If passed into law, Senate Bill 54 and Assembly Bill 1080 would establish a comprehensive framework to address the pollution and waste crisis, and set a statewide goal to ensure manufacturers reduce waste generated by single-use packaging and products by 75% by 2030. Also known as the California Circular Economy and Pollution Reduction Act, the bills would have great impact on plastic products and packaging.

SB 54/AB 1080 would require CalRecycle to develop regulations that:

  1. Require producers to design packaging to reduce unnecessary waste and be fully recyclable or compostable by 2030, and meet specified recycling rates over time.
  2. Require that priority single-use food service ware products (plates, bowls, cups, utensils, stirrers and straws) be source reduced,* or manufactured only with recyclable or compostable material by 2030. (*Source reduction includes, but is not limited to, transitioning single-use packaging or a priority single-use product to refillable or reusable packaging or a reusable product.)
  3. Develop incentives and policies to encourage in-state manufacturing using recycled material generated in California.
