    Plastic pollution is now considered one of the largest environmental problems globally. More than 8 billion tons of plastic has been produced with an additional 400 million tons created each year. Drink bottles, food wrappers, and other plastic products account for nearly a fifth of U.S. municipal solid waste. Yet, less than 10 percent of that plastic waste is recycled and plastic production continues to increase. Internationally, some countries have begun to ban single-use plastics, while domestically the laws are evolving at the local, state, and federal level. In 2019, more than 290 pieces of state legislation related to plastics were introduced or under consideration across the United States. At the federal level, major plastics legislation has been introduced that would phase out unnecessary single-use plastic products, place responsibility on corporations for wasteful products, and reform the U.S. waste and recycling collection system. Meanwhile, some organizations have used existing laws, such as the Clean Water Act, to file suit to address plastic pollution. This panel will examine the current state of international and domestic laws related to plastics, trends in where those laws are going, and implications for your clients.
