Chemistry in the States
Tell Congress to OPPOSE a Tax on Plastics
Congress is considering a proposal to levy an excise tax of 20 cents per pound on plastic resins produced in the United States. Such a tax would not meaningfully curb plastic waste, but would raise prices on almost everything you buy, cost American jobs, favor Chinese imports, and result in more greenhouse gas emissions. Urge Congress to say NO to a tax on plastics.
Polypropylene is a versatile industrial petrochemical product. It exists naturally in the environment and is well suited for many applications, including food packaging, reusable containers, and fabrics. It is recyclable and highly valued by material recovery facilities.
