Consumer Brands Association Calls for Standardized Recycling System

On April 16, 2020, the Consumer Brands Association (CBA) released its “policy platform” “... with recommendations to achieve the country’s optimal recycling system …” – The policy platform represents “… the views of the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry, and focuses on finding scalable solutions to address the underlying issues in the recycling and recovery system … The CPG industry supports a national solution to fix the country’s broken recycling system requiring three key elements: a standard foundation; long-term financing mechanisms …; and strong end-markets to meet demand … Recycling is not the final or only solution to our packaging challenges, but without a functioning recycling system, there is no second life for valuable material … CBA launched the Recycling Leadership Council, a diverse group of stakeholders … committed to working together to effect change …” #Recycling #FoodPackaging #SingleUsePlastic #PlasticWaste
