Environmental Policy

Senate Bill 54 and Assembly Bill 1080
California Circular Economy and Plastic Pollution Reducation Act

The Problem

  • We produce 300 million tons of plastic per year

  • Plastic production will increase by 40% in the next 10 years

  • 50% of plastic produced is for single use purposes

  • 8 million tons of plastic are thrown into the ocean per year

  • Less than 9% of plastic is recycled

Bill Overview

  • SB 54 and AB 1080 would reduce California's plastic usage by getting rid of single use, non-recyclable plastic and pushing companies to create eco-friendly packaging
