Very soon your House Representatives will hear two important environmental bills.

HB20-1163  Management Of Single-use Products   Finance Committee hearing date is Monday, March 9

HB20-1162 Prohibit Food Establishments' Use Of Polystyrene  to be heard by the Appropriation Committee.

On February 24, in a packed room, these bills were passed by the Energy and Environment Committee.  Both bills received substantial public testimony in support.


Please contact your representative voicing your support for these bills to reduce plastic waste that is accumulating in our landfills and harming our environment.
