The California State Legislature has passed a bill that further restricts environmental marketing claims for plastic products. AB 2287 would expand restrictions on plastic degradability claims by eliminating the option of marine degradable claims, although it still permits compostability claims that comply with state requirements. The bill passed the Senate on August 29, 2020, the Assembly on August 30, 2020, and was enrolled on September 1, 2020. Governor Gavin Newsom has 12 days to sign or veto it. If Governor Newsom take no action, under state rules, the bill will automatically become law on September 30, 2020.
