Contact your legislators today to tell them to vote for the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) bill (House Bill 7279)!

Single-use plastics destroy the world we live in… so we need to make a change. The Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (RIRRC) estimates that the landfill in Rhode Island will reach capacity by 2038…that’s only 16 years away. To extend its lifespan and protect our environment, we have to reduce the volume of waste that ends up in the landfill and the only solution is to stop single-use plastics while we still can.

We need to hold plastic manufacturers responsible for the environmental damage they cause.

Take action! Tell your legislators to support the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) bill!
