Tell the EPA: It's time to regulate what plastics get labeled as "widely recyclable"

Companies are set to start labeling many plastic products as "widely recyclable," but only 2.7% of them are actually recycled. This designation allows plastic manufacturers to continue to produce single-use plastics that we just don't need under the guise that they're recyclable.

Rather than let companies make the rules, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) should be working to create a recycling program that incentivizes the production of truly recyclable materials.

Call on the EPA to regulate this label.
