Takeaways:

  • Nonprofit organization, Northeast Recycling Council has proposed a bill which would require producers of plastic products to manufacture them with a minimum amount of post-consumer recycled plastic.
  • These products would include trash bags, takeout bags, and non-durable containers (such as those used for household cleaning and personal care products).
  • To understand the effect this would have- last year Palmolive relaunched its Palmolive Ultra Dish Soap 100% post-consumer recycled plastic which helped them divert over 5200 tons of plastic from the landfill.
