Anti-Plastics Bill Would ‘Devastate’ Manufacturing, US Economy, According to Plastics Industry Association

The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) also announced its strong opposition to the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act. “This legislation would be absolutely devastating to manufacturing jobs and America’s overall economy just as we begin to rebound from the effects of COVID-19,” said PLASTICS President and CEO Tony Radoszewski. “This bill is a direct threat to the nearly one million men and women who work in the domestic plastics industry. Additionally, this misguided legislation could have the unintended consequence of leading to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions.”
