An Open Letter

To: Rep. Jacobs, Sen. Butler, Sen. Padilla

From: A verified voter in San Diego, CA

Please support the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act, which was reintroduced in October 2023. This legislation has the power to comprehensively tackle plastics production, inspire copycat legislation at the state level, introduce millions of Americans to progressive, science-backed solutions, and move the U.S. toward a strong position in the ongoing Global Plastics Treaty negotiations. Here are just a few of the incredible ways this bill could help the U.S. break free from plastic:  • Create a nationwide refund program for beverage containers  • Ban many non-recyclable single-use plastic products and bags • Eliminate toxic substances in beverage containers and post-consumer recycled material • Establish a nationwide Extended Producer Responsibility program  • Spur investment in recycling and composting infrastructure  • Stop waste from being shipped to developing countries • Temporarily pause new permits for petrochemical facilities • Establishes strict limitations for wastewater, spills, and runoff from plastic polymer production facilities Please support the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act.
