Policy + Advocacy

Take Action Now

Over 380 million tons of plastic are produced every year, with up to half of that for single-use purposes – utilized for just a few moments. And throughout the life cycle of plastic – from production through use to the end of its useful life, whether buried or burned or dumped in our oceans – it harms our environment and our health in myriad ways.

Real solutions will require the participation of producers and consumers, but that will not be enough without government action at the federal, state, and local levels. This page will provide you with resources to understand current regulations and policies related to packaging, and help to connect you with various advocacy opportunities to drive policy change and engage your legislators in relevant packaging and waste management efforts.

Let’s collaborate

Together, let’s drive an industry shift toward a planet-friendly approach to responsible packaging.
