Plastic Packaging Study

In 2019, the Washington Legislature passed the Plastic Packaging Evaluation and Assessment law, which states that producers of plastic packaging should consider the design and management of their packaging in a manner that ensures minimal environmental impact. Per the law, the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) has hired an independent third-party consultant team, led by Cascadia Consulting Group (Cascadia), to study how plastic packaging is managed in Washington and to assess various policy options to meet the goals and timeline of the law. Cascadia is conducting research about the types and amount of plastic entering the state, where packaging waste is going at the end of its life and the costs to manage it, as well as developing proposals for reducing plastic packaging waste in Washington.
