Federal and State Trends in Plastic Production, Products, and Packaging Regulation

Please join Beveridge & Diamond for the first program in Beveridge & Diamond's Circular Economy and Plastics Webinar Series, designed to help you navigate the latest local, state, and federal government actions addressing concerns around plastics in the environment across the United States. 

Increasingly, proposed and adopted federal and state laws seek to require extended producer responsibility and impose bans and restrictions on plastic products sales. Rulemaking and enforcement efforts are also seeking to establish controls for plastic production facilities.

B&D's Russ LaMotteDacie Meng and Sarah Munger will walk through examples of recent proposals and laws, including the federal Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act of 2020 and circular economy legislation in California. In addition, the webinar will cover trends we have observed relating to these efforts, particularly related activities in the private sector and new developments in response to COVID-19.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance registration is required. Please RSVP to confirm your participation.
