BREAKING: Groundbreaking Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act launches! Senator Udall (D-NM) and Representative Lowenthal (D-CA) introduce groundbreaking legislation that tackles the plastic pollution crisis head on. The act calls for a national bottle bill, bans certain polluting products, temporarily pauses the development of new plastic facilities, sets new standards for minimum recycled content, institutes a carryout bag fee, prevents waste from being shipped overseas, requires manufacturers to collect and recycle materials, and protects existing state policy designed to curb the use of single-use plastic.
