Packaging continues to dominate the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) legislative field. In 2022 alone, 16 states – including New York – introduced packaging EPR legislation and game-changing packaging laws were enacted in California and Colorado. This continues the momentum from the previous year, when the first two laws were enacted in Maine and Oregon. Given this momentum, PSI will convene a group of legislators who championed many of these bills to share their knowledge and lessons learned.
The rapid evolution of packaging EPR legislation in the United States will have massive influence on global markets — especially California, which is now the fifth largest economy in the world. In this webinar, we’ll touch on why packaging EPR legislation is critically important to solve the plastic pollution and climate crises, explore how different EPR models and strategies — from municipal reimbursement to hybrid to full EPR — are built into legislation, discuss stakeholders and potential roadblocks, and include ample time for Q&A.
