December 8, 2020 – The Sustainable Food Policy Alliance (SFPA), including members Danone North America, Mars, Incorporated, Nestlé USA, and Unilever United States, submitted comments on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) “Draft National Recycling Strategy.”
Our comments reflect our packaging and recycling policy priorities and how SFPA member companies have increasingly focused on addressing packaging and recycling issues, especially the global plastic challenge and marine debris, which is essential to reducing our carbon footprint and supporting a healthier planet.
We are pleased that EPA has undertaken this effort to improve the U.S. recycling system. In particular, we support EPA’s first ever National Recycling Goal of reaching a 50 percent recycling rate by 2030. This goal will ultimately move more material into the system, which is a key step to improving the U.S. recycling system overall
