Require plastic producers to pay for the damage they’ve caused


California communities pay over $420 million a year to clean up and prevent unnecessary plastic pollution from entering our rivers, beaches, and ocean. This ballot measure establishes a fee on producers of up to one penny per piece of single-use plastic packaging and foodware, so that plastic producers--not California residents--pay the cost of recycling their products that become trash. This initiative also prohibits plastic producers from passing the fee on to consumers.
