Write your state senator: Support the RENEW Act (SB5697)

Washington has a waste problem. Plastics have been found from the deepest trenches of the ocean to the mountaintops and inland rivers of the Pacific Northwest. Plastic production has increased by 2000% since the 1960's and continues to rise, yet only 17% of plastic waste is actually recycled in Washington.

All the while, Washington's landfills are overflowing and our recycling system isn't functioning as effectively as it could. To fix Washington's waste problem, we need to make manufacturers and brand-owners financially responsible for the full life cycle of their products and the packaging they choose to use.

Write to your state senator to ask them to support extended producer responsibility legislation in Washington (SB 5697) today.
