Washington, May 9, 2022 – The Sustainable Food Policy Alliance (SFPA), which includes global food companies Danone North America, Mars, Incorporated, Nestlé USA, and Unilever United States, supports Colorado’s HB 22-1355, which would establish a best in class Extended Producer Responsibility program that will achieve increased recycling rates for all materials and set a standard for other states considering how to improve recycling systems.
We have signed on to two letters in support of the bill, alongside the following organizations:
- Letter with American Beverage Association, including the Coca-Cola Company, Keurig Dr Pepper and PepsiCo
- Letter with Consumer Goods Forum’s Plastic Waste Coalition of Action, featuring Amcor, the Coca Cola Company, L’Oréal USA, McCain Foods, PepsiCo, Reckitt, SC Johnson and Walmart
Our support for this proposal is a natural reflection of work by SFPA to advance modern and efficient packaging and recycling policies at the state and national level. For more on these topics, see:
