Plastic Waste – Single Use Plastic Products on Interior Department Managed Lands to be Phased Out by 2032

A June 8, 2022 Interior Department news release advises that the DoI Secretary has issued an Executive Order “... which aims to reduce the procurement, sale and distribution of single-use plastic products and packaging with a goal of phasing out single-use plastic products on Department-managed lands by 2032. The Order is part of the implementation of President Biden’s Executive Order 14057, which calls for federal agencies to minimize waste and support markets for recycled products … The Order also directs the Department to identify nonhazardous, environmentally preferable alternatives to single-use plastic products, such as compostable or biodegradable materials, or 100 percent recycled materials …” #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #Recycling @Interior
